Our final tribute to Opening Day this year. My how times have changed. This was the very first game of the season, and it was on April 17th - 18 days later than 2014. The Tigers lost to the Kansas City Athletics 2-1 in 2 hours and 37 minutes. The 2014 home opener was 3 hours and 1 minute. The opener in 1956 didn't sell out; there were 45,068 in attendance.
