the year 2000 it replaced Tiger stadium
In Spring of 2000 it was hard for many fans to picture the Detroit Tigers playing anywhere else other than Tiger Stadium, a ballpark where they had played at since 1912. With the years passing, Comerica Park has become a great home for the Tigers as they have won two American League Championships and have hosted an All-Star Game here. The concept of a new stadium for the Tigers began in the 1980s. Fans saw no need to replace Tiger Stadium as it was a great place to watch a ballgame and was a historical ballpark full of charm and character. Ownership wanted a new stadium with more modern amenities that include luxury suites and club seats. - See more at: http://www.ballparksofbaseball.com/al/ComericaPark.htm#sthash.IZmHvsyd.dpuf

A by the stat's value indicates the player had fewer than the required number of at bats or plate appearances for the BA, OBP, SLG or OPS title that year. In order to rank the player, the necessary number of hitless at bats were added to the player's season total. The value printed here is their actual value and not the value used to rank them, therefore some numbers may appear out of order. Requirements to qualify for rate stats.
Statistics like WPA, REW and RE24 are computed from play-by-play data which is only complete from 1974 to the present. From 1938-1973, the data is incomplete, though for most seasons only less than 20 games per season total are missing. Please see our page on data coverage for a full view of the data used to create these leaderboards.
