Detroit TigersThink that fans are buzzing about the Detroit Tigers' chances this year after acquiring Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera this off-season?

As we reported last week, last year, for the entire season, the Tigers' full-season equivalents (FSE) total was 19,030. By February 25th, they passed the 26,000 mark in FSEs with six weeks to go before the start of the season.

That was before any single game tickets went on sale this past weekend.

The Tigers report that they sold 176,000 single game tickets on Saturday, and by Sunday evening had sold 202,000, smashing their last year figures.

At the same point last season, the Tigers had sold 76,000 first day of sales and 87,000 to the same point on Sunday. That marks a staggering increase of 132 percent increase over last year.

Reached for comment, Rob Matwick, VP of Communications for the Tigers said, "We sold more than 80,000 in the first two hours of the on-sale on Saturday, which surpassed the entire total for the first day in 2007."
