The 2021 Detroit Tigers season will be the team's 121st season and its 22nd at Comerica Park. This will be the Tigers' first season under new manager A. J. Hinch following the sudden retirement of Ron Gardenhire on September 19, 2020.[1][2] The Tigers' season will tentatively begin at home on April 1 against the Cleveland Indians, pending changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[3] They will attempt to make the playoffs for the first time since 2014.
