The Detroit Tigers’ Spring Training schedule, reduced to 19 games from the 33 scheduled before the players’ lockout, starts March 18 with a home game at Joker Marchant Stadium against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The season concludes on April 6 with a home game against the Baltimore Orioles.

The Tigers are part of a four-team pod that also includes the Phillies (five games), New York Yankees (five games) and Toronto Blue Jays (four games). They also play the Pittsburgh Pirates (two games) and Orioles (three games), the Detroit Free Press reported.

Single-game tickets go on sale here on Sunday, which is also the first mandatory report day for all major league teams.

RELATED: A shortened spring training affects city coffers and local merchants, The Ledger reports. The city of Lakeland keeps $8 from every $10 parking space at Tigertown. “The only dollars we’re losing is some of the parking revenue,” Parks and Rec Director Bob Donahay said. “We’ll recoup.”
