The Detroit Tigers will retire Sparky Anderson's No. 11 this year, one of several gestures the team is planning to honor the late manager.

The Tigers also will wear a commemorative patch to honor the Hall of Fame manager who led them to the World Series title in 1984, and raise a flag with his name on it at their home opener.

We loved you Sparky. A classy move by the Tigers and should be celebrated by the Tigers and Reds families alike.
