    The 1912 Detroit Tigers season was a season in American baseball. It involved the Tigers finishing sixth in the American League. It was the team's first season in Tiger Stadium.

    Regular season

    • April 20, 1912: Navin Field opened the same day as Fenway Park.[1] It was supposed to be opened on April 18 (like Fenway Park) but it rained in both cities on that day.[2] Ty Cobb scored the first run in Tiger Stadium by stealing home.[1]
    • May 18, 1912: Tigers players went on strike to protest the suspension of star center fielder Ty Cobb, who had gone into the stands on May 15 to attack a disabled fan who had been abusing him. The Tigers sent out a team of replacement players, mostly local college and sandlot players but also including Tigers coaches Joe Sugden and 48-year-old Deacon McGuire. Manager Hughie Jennings also entered the game as a pinch hitter. Starting pitcher Allan Travers gave up 24 runs on 26 hits in a complete game loss, both American League records.
    • July 4, 1912: George Mullin threw the first no-hitter in Detroit Tigers history.[3] The Tigers beat the St. Louis Browns by a score of 7–0. It was also Mullin's 32nd birthday.
