I always thought that Detroit lucked out when it came to sports team names. It seems pretty impressive to me that they have one team called the Lions and another called the Tigers, two of the coolest animals in the animal kingdom. The Lions were originally established as the Portsmouth Spartans and were based in Ohio, joining the NFL in 1930.
In 1934, the team was purchased and moved to Detroit. Comparatively, the Tigers have always been the Tigers, since the team was established in 1894. They are the oldest franchise in the American League to remain in the same city with the same name. So when someone buys a Detroit Tigers tire cover, they’re supporting legacy that’s nearly a hundred and twenty years old.
When the New York Yankees was initially founded, they were actually known as the Baltimore Orioles. It wasn’t until 1903 that the team relocated to New York and adopted the name the New York Highlanders, though the press often referred to the team as the Yankees because it was an easier name to fit in the headlines of the sports page in newspapers.
Through the years, the Yankees have played in many home stadiums, from Hilltop Park to Shea Stadium to the current Yankee Stadium, which was built in 2009. Yankees fans have always been particularly dedicated to their team and they are often likely to be seen with merchandise such as a jersey or a New York Yankees tire cover.
It’s finally that time of year again! Spring Training is over and it’s time for Major League Baseball season to begin. My friends and I are so very excited because all of us are huge baseball fans. We love watching our favorite teams play on the big-screen TVs at our local sports bar. We also participate in a fantasy baseball team, which is a lot of fun.
Each of us is a particularly big fan of one specific team, so we’re always excited when each other’s teams play against one another. Each of us has a different MLB spare tire cover and a different jersey that goes along with our favorite teams and everything. I definitely believe we are among the biggest baseball fans that I’ve ever met.
