Tigers get stuck in Boston wearing full Zubaz outfits

Team arrived in Cleveland for a 7 p.m. game well after 4 p.m.

If you're going to be stranded, you might as well be stranded in style.

After they completed a sweep of the Red Sox last night, several Tigers players went on Twitter and Instagram to share pictures of the guys wearing full Zubaz gear.

Little did they know, they would be wearing those outfits until about 4 p.m. ET Monday afternoon.

Detroit's plane that was supposed to be headed to Cleveland was not able to take off on Sunday night after the team won its sixth straight game, so they had to crash in Beantown.

Instead, they had to leave Monday afternoon, arriving at Progressive Field close to 5 p.m. for the 7:05 p.m. game.

Tigers pitcher Drew Smyly, who left for Cleveland earlier on Sunday because he is starting Monday's game, had the clubhouse to himself for most of the day.
