The Tigers first World Series appearance in 22 years has Motown rocking. Thousands headed downtown for game one whether they has tickets or not.

For some fans, it's the pinnacle of a memorable season.

"It's been a riot this year," Jim Vermeulen said. "This is a dream come true. We've been waiting 22 years for this."

Other have been coming to see the Tigers for decades, many of which have been a struggle.

"I've been buying tickets for 20 years and you couldn't give them away," Lynne Leipold said. "Now here we are and everyone wants my tickets."

Tiger pride is contagious, especially for fans who don't remember the team's last championship.

"I was a year old last time they made it so I'm pretty pumped," Andrea Miller said. "It's obviously a dream come true for everyone in Michigan so I'm pretty pumped."
