This Tigers fan has given us a great new uniform idea for Detroit

Simply wearing your favorite team's cap in enemy territory can feel like a bold move, but this Detroit fan redefines dedication. He sat squarely behind home plate to root for the visiting Tigers at Kauffman Stadium -- in a full tiger costume, complete with matching tiger hand puppet. We almost want to believe that he just happened to stop by the ballpark in whatever he wore to work that day.

My favorite part is how the tiger "claps" in time with the rest of the crowd.

Next time the Royals play in Detroit, I fully expect to see someone dressed in authentic period costume as King Charles II at Comerica Park. Your move, KC.
