    Forty-five guys dressed up as “Magnum P.I.” during a bachelor party Saturday night and went to the Detroit Tigers game against the Chicago White Sox at Comerica Park. They wore Hawaiian shirts, Tigers caps and pressed-on mustaches. They even carried around a life-size cutout of Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum, the lead character from his popular ’80s private-detective drama. Amazingly we haven’t even gotten to the oddest part of the story yet. The 45 Magnums were ejected from the game by stadium security, as the groom’s younger brother told the Detroit-adjacent News-Herald, because one of them was smoking and they...
  • MLB Announces Suspensions From Tigers-Yankees Brawl

    MLB Trade Rumors ^ | August 25, 2017 at 3:54pm CDT | Jeff Todd
    The league has officially handed down suspensions arising out of yesterday’s fisticuffs between the Tigers and Yankees. Detroit star Miguel Cabrera received the stiffest discipline, with a seven-game ban owing to his “inciting the first bench-clearing incident and fighting.” Cabrera isn’t the only one who’ll take some games of unpaid leave (pending appeal). Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez got four games for throwing punches in the melee — he was fortunate, perhaps, not to take a harsher punishment — while fellow New York backstop Austin Romine got two for his part in the tangle with Cabrera. That could cause the organization...

Tigers are Flagship Species of Temperate and Sub- Tropical Forests from Siberia to India.
  • Wild Thai Tiger Cub Footage Sparks Hope for Endangered Species

    Conservationists on Tuesday hailed the discovery of a new breeding population of tigers in Thailand as a “miraculous” victory for a sub-species feared wiped out by poaching. Images of four mothers and six cubs, captured by camera traps in an eastern Thai jungle throughout 2016, confirm the presence of what is only the world’s second known breeding population of the endangered Indochinese tiger. The last such tiger family was seen 15 years ago in a western forest corridor along Thailand’s border with Myanmar. ”The extraordinary rebound of eastern Thailand’s tigers is nothing short of miraculous,”

    Never underestimate a tiger, no matter how fat. It's an enduring truth we'd all do well to remember — and one that attendants at a tiger enclosure at the Siberian Tiger Park in China's Heilongjiang province have learned all over again. They scrambled a flying drone to catch the attention of some of the, let's say, bigger big cats and get them some exercise. Trouble is, the tigers managed to track down the drone and bat it out of the air. Then, naturally, the Siberian tigers tried to eat it. Number Of Wild Tigers Increases For First Time In 100...

  • Goa - Unknown Home for Tigers

    Goa which is situated on the West Coast of India is well known for its famous beaches such as Calangute, Vagator, Colva, and Arambol. However, it is relatively unknown as a "Refuge" for Tigers. Camera Traps installed by the Wildlife Conservation Society in April 2013 in Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary in Goa captured 4 Tigers on film. These findings, on film give some hope that the State Government of Goa in its wisdom will now declare this sanctuary located in the ecologically rich "Western Ghats" or Western Indian Mountains a "Tiger Reserve". It is necessary to declare 500 square kilometres of...

    Dean Chance, the 1964 Cy Young winner and a recently inducted member of the Angels Hall of Fame, has died. He was 74 ... In 1964, Chance was 20-9 with a 1.65 ERA, winning the Cy Young Award at a time when there was only one winner, rather than one for each league. At the time, the 23-year-old Chance was the youngest pitcher ever to win the Cy Young, a distinction he held until Dwight Gooden won the award at age 20 in 1985 ...

    he Washington Nationals have been mired in turmoil over the past week, but Max Scherzer made the pain of dugout brawls and clubhouse chaos disappear Saturday night as he twirled his second no-hitter of the season in a 2-0 win over the New York Mets at Citi Field. Scherzer's the second pitcher to record two no-hitters in the regular season since 1973. The other, according to B/R Insights, is Nolan Ryan. Washington's ace recorded 17 strikeouts in the win—seven more than he notched in his no-hit effort on June 20 against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The 17 strikeouts also tied Ryan...
  • How Ty Cobb Was Framed as a Racist

    New York Post ^ | 5/31 | Kyle Smith
    The two things everyone knows about Ty Cobb are that he was a phenomenal baseball player and that he was the worst racist ever to play the game. But one of these things is mostly wrong. Cobb, the first player voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, the holder of more than 90 records upon his retirement and still the pace-setter with a .366 lifetime batting average, could be rude, but not nearly as nasty as you think. And far from being the most notorious racist in baseball history, he was an early and vocal supporter of integrating the big...

    In a bird-vs-tiger death match, the winner might seem obvious - but one courageous crane managed to fight off his attackers after accidentally getting trapped in the big cat enclosure at a zoo in China. The red-crowned crane was blown into the tiger garden by a sudden, strong wind during a public display at the Fuyang Wildlife Park in Zhejiang Province. Two of the resident cats immediately took an interest in the possibility of an afternoon snack, and began chasing the bird down. Not to be defeated, however, the crane squared up to the predators and began chasing them instead....
