It’s starting to look like the Detroit Tigers are a pretty fun and interesting team to follow. At the beginning of the season, you would have never guessed that they would be as successful as they are now, but the squad of Tigers has become the best team in baseball. The reason for success? They are loose and they’re having fun — wearing tiger-themed Zubaz on the way home from Boston was a good indication.

Every game seems like a new adventure for this team and with a young manager like Brad Ausmus at the helm, relating to his players more than Jim Leyland did, there is a serious recipe for success in Detroit.

Just check out what the team wore on the way home from its series against the Boston Red Sox:

This is pretty awesome.

Some may argue that the Tampa Bay Rays are the most fun team in baseball because their manager, Joe Maddon, is always pulling some ridiculous team-building, costume-wearing stunt. However, this Detroit team is starting to gain ground with their perfection of wearing Zubaz.

Everyone seems to be having fun, and why not? I mean, they do have the best record in baseball at 27-12 and just swept the Red Sox on the road to win their 11th consecutive road game.

As a fan of baseball, I would say that this team will be fun to watch all season long and I hope they have more Zubaz in the arsenal — maybe even get Ausmus to wear one.

Fun teams have good chemistry. Good chemistry wins games. Winning games usually means titles.
