March 7, Florida
Detroit Tigers at New York Yankees (Steinbrenner Field, Tampa – 7:05 p.m.; tickets from $17) The last time Derek Jeter played in a game against Detroit, he broke his ankle, as the Yankees finished the season with a whimper, getting eliminated by the Tigers in the 2012 American League Championship Series. The Yankees have reloaded in what Jeter says is his final season, adding veterans like Carlos Beltran and Brian McCann and recruiting Japanese star Masahiro Tanaka. The Tigers have their share of new faces, too, led by former Texas Rangers infielder Ian Kinsler. This is a night game, making your travel to Florida a bit easier -- you can make it even if you have to leave the office at noon.
