1972 Detroit Tigers Season
The 1972 Detroit Tigers won the American League East division championship with a record of 86-70 (.551), finishing one-half game ahead of the Boston Red Sox. They played one more game than the Red Sox due to a scheduling quirk caused by the 1972 Major League Baseball strike -- a game which turned out to allow them to win the division. They lost the 1972 American League Championship Series to the Oakland A's three games to two.

Famous quotes containing the words tigers and/or season:
“When two tigers fight, one is sure to be wounded.”
“The season developed and matured. Another years installment of flowers, leaves, nightingales, thrushes, finches, and such ephemeral creatures, took up their positions where only a year ago others had stood in their place when these were nothing more than germs and inorganic particles. Rays from the sunrise drew forth the buds and stretched them into long stalks, lifted up sap in noiseless streams, opened petals, and sucked out scents in invisible jets and breathings.”
—Thomas Hardy (18401928)
