Tigers opening on good friday Catholics displeased.
Jesus hung on the cross from noon till 3pm on Good Friday the Tigers home opener begins at 1:05pm against the Texas Rangers the only game scheduled during this time period. Does this mean that Detroit is atheist? I’m gonna go with no on that one. My guess is that when the schedule was written this was an oversight.The Rev. Ed Vilkauskas of downtown Detroit’s St. Mary’s Catholic Church said the game at nearby Comerica Park will keep people from services. Nobody is knocking baseball or the fact that its to cold in Detroit for a night game at this time of year, but come on Good Friday? It’s a 2000year old tradition.
I hope that the Tigers decide to move the game to 3:30 or find another way to work something out. Looking at the Tigers record last season it might not hurt to have God on their side.
Hey how about a pre-game service? It’s all about compromise people.
