Spring is in the air and the boys of summer are headed back to the “D” for the 2018 Tigers baseball season. To celebrate America’s favorite pastime and our hometown team, Pewabic releases its new Detroit Tigers “D” tile Saturday, March 24.
The 4×4 two-tone tile features the Tigers Old English “D” most recognizable from Tigers hats. This more stylized design reflects the team’s recent uniform change to use the more pointed-top Old English “D” consistently as its logo. The tiles, officially licensed Major League Baseball products, are available in two glaze options – Midnight and Lagoon – and cost $50 each.
“Pewabic is thrilled to partner with Major League Baseball and the Detroit Tigers to release this tile in sync with the uniform change and in time for the home opener,” says Whitney Kenniburg, Pewabic retail manager. “We’re always proud to support the home team.”
Pewabic appreciates a longtime connection with the Tigers, perhaps most noticeably at Comerica Park, where Pewabic is an element of the exterior design, incorporating 462 half-circle baseballs, along with embossed Old English “D” tiles, medallions, Tiger-stripe trim pieces, and an oversized tiger medallion.
