No release with the full roster for TigerFest this time, but that’s likely because the vast majority of the projected roster is here already.
The players we know will not be here for TigerFest include Ryan Raburn (wife is expecting their first child), Brad Thomas (in Australia) and likely Brad Penny (just signed and on vacation this week). Aside from a few pitching prospects, the rest of the roster is here. Joaquin Benoit is expected to be around as well after traveling from Boston, where he received the Tony Conigliaro Award from the Boston baseball writers Thursday night.
Correction: Carlos Guillen is indeed here.
So if you’re among the lucky with tickets to TigerFest, you should have plenty of options for autographs and photos. Just remember to dress warm, of course.
