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.
