    ‘Detroit gets a lot of things right:’ Angels Maddon lauds energy at Comerica Park

    Detroit — Wednesday night, the crowd at Comerica Park chanted, “MVP, MVP,” as Angels Shohei Ohtani trotted around the bases after walloping a 430-foot home run and dominating the Tigers on the mound for eight innings.

    On Thursday, the fans came out to resume stalking history with Miguel Cabrera, cheering wildly as he knocked in four runs with his first two swings in the Tigers’ frustrating 13-10 loss.

    Even if historic home run No. 500 is still waiting to be struck, and even if this get-away game became a train wreck for the home team, it was a great series for the game of baseball and a pretty good reminder — on the day that one of the franchise icons, Bill Freehan, died — what a dynamic baseball town Detroit can be.

    Angels manager Joe Maddon certainly noticed.

    “Detroit is a great baseball city, tremendous tradition,” he told the Associated Press and other reporters via Zoom before the game. “As a kid growing up, I knew everything about them. I’ve gotten to know Willie Horton. I knew Al Kaline. All these guys, my God, Alan Trammell, (Lou) Whitaker, all these guys are really outstanding.

    “This city has had a wonderful tradition of baseball and I think they appreciate it.”
