Last June 2 I had a lot of season ticket trade-in tickets. I gave them to relatives, I gave them to coworkers, I gave them to friends of coworkers. June 2 was a pretty good game last year. This year I had even more tickets due to a slow Tiger start and a cold May. Certainly there could be no repeat, today, on this June’s trade-in day?
Well, Justin Verlander, pitched a complete game, 2 hit shut out. He had a no hitter with one out in the 8th. He struck out 12 Indians including4 strike outs of Grady Sizemore. Jackson also caught a ball that would have been a home run in the 2nd.
I think even when someday I am no longer a season ticket holder I will look up when the June trade in day is and pick up a couple tickets.
PS The slow start is over. The Indians and Tigers were tied for first going into this game.
