OK. So, the Detroit Tigers are off to a rocky season, but let’s take it back to 1968 — “the comeback season.” The assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Vietnam War were among two pivotal events that would shape the nation the same year the Detroit Tigers won the World Series Championship. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the team’s historic win, The Year of the Tiger: 1968 aims to tell the tale of how a baseball victory gave Detroit something to celebrate despite the turbulent national climate
