Activities That Aren’t Golfing for the Tigers

It is often said of the players whose teams fail to make the postseason — or have otherwise been eliminated from the playoffs — it’s often said of such players that they “are golfing now” or “are golfing in October” or something along those lines. Having said that, I will also submit that not every member of the recently eliminated Detroit Tigers necessarily fits the precise demographic profile of Big Time Golf Enthusiast. How are they supposed to pass the next couple of months?

With a view to answering that question, I present the following — a record of three upcoming Detroit-area activities that might entertain and fulfill Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander, and other of this year’s American League champions.

I think we all know what Cabrera is going to be doing.
