    Regular season

    • April 20, 1912: The Naps played in the first ever game at Navin Field in Detroit against Ty Cobb's Detroit Tigers. Navin Field, later known as Tiger Stadium, opened the same day as Fenway Park.[1] It was supposed to have opened on April 18 (like Fenway Park) but it rained in both cities on that day.[2] Naps batter Shoeless Joe Jackson crossed for the first run ever scored at Navin Field, though the Tigers would win the game 6–5.[3] Although Jackson would go on to hit a team leading .395 for the season including 3 home runs and 90 RBI's, he finished second in batting average to Ty Cobb who hit .409 for the year.
