Fans are excited about the upcoming season. In terms of star power, the Detroit Tigers can match any team in baseball. With sluggers Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder and ace Justin Verlander, Detroit has three of the game's biggest stars in their prime. The first workout takes place Monday.

Think you have what it takes to be a Tiger? The Tigers will hold a tryout camp at their TigerTown Minor League Complex in Lakeland, Fla., on March 5. It's for players ages 18 to 23, or those with previous professional baseball experience. No pre-registration or participation fee is necessary to attend the camp. Those interested in trying out need to bring their own gloves and workout equipment. Wooden bats, helmets and baseballs will be provided by the Tigers.
