The Tigers will honor Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson from a patch on their right sleeves to the retirement of his No. 11 on the brick wall at Comerica Park.
Team president/general manager Dave Dombrowski made the announcement on Saturday morning during his annual question-and-answer session at TigerFest.
"To me, there's no greater honor for a franchise to bestow upon an individual than to retire his number," Dombrowski said. "It's happened very few times in Tiger history, with all the great players that have been through."
