Looking for tickets to the World Series? Watch ticket trends before buying.
Tigers mania has reached a fever pitch in Metro Detroit as the Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants do battle in the World Series. Fans eager to be a part of the live action, however, might have to dip deep into their savings when buying tickets. According to Crain's Detroit Business, the average ticket price for Games 3, 4 and 5 at Comerica Park are about $730. But, Crain's reports, the prices have plummeted in the past week and a half: On ticket reseller StubHub.com, the cheapest tickets during the homestand are $375 for a single standing-room-only spot for Game 3 or Game 5.

The first pitch of the World Series is just hours away and one Patch editor shares his thoughts on why the Tigers will win the Fall Classic. Tell us in the comments: Why do you think they will win?
The Detroit Tigers and the San Francisco Giants - two of the most storied teams in Major League Baseball - will take the field Wednesday night at 8:07 p.m. at AT&T Park for Game 1 of the World Series. While the teams are pretty evenly matched, there are some intangibles and notable qualities of the team, city and state which make the Tigers favorites in the World Series. (At least in my opinion.) Here is why Detroit will win: When you combine these ingredients and add a pinch of desire to avenge last year's American League Championship series loss to the Texas Rangers, you can see the Tigers are a hungry bunch. Just ask the Yankees, who were swept in four straight games during this year's ALCS. When they win, Tigers fans will celebrate …

The orchestrated version of the song was scored in-house by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra's librarians.
Wednesday, October 17, 2012
In honor of the Tigers' success against the New York Yankees, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) finished each of its three concerts last weekend with an orchestrated version of the vintage fight song, "Go Get 'Em Tigers." Scored in-house by DSO librarians, "Go Get 'Em Tigers" was the theme song of Detroit's 1968 championship team, and in 2006, after the Tigers beat the Yankees in the American League Division Series, it was played as players carried manager Jim Leyland off the field. "Go Get 'Em Tigers" Lyrics: We're all behind our baseball team Go get 'em Tigers World Series bound and picking up steam Go get 'em Tigers There'll be joy in Tiger Town the whole night long when the Bengals bring the pennant home to where it belongs We're…
