    The 1995 Detroit Tigers finished in fourth place in the American League Eastern Division with a record of 60–84 (.417).

    Regular season

    This was legendary manager Sparky Anderson's final year. Although the team fielded a respectable lineup, the pitching continued to be a liability; they were outscored by their opponents 844–654. Only the Minnesota Twins allowed more runs in the American League. Despite their inconsistencies, the Tigers found themselves just three games out of first place after beating Kansas City, 4-2 on July 9. However, when play resumed after the All-Star break, the Tigers went into perpetual free fall, winning just 23 of 74 games. The Tigers drew 1,180,979 fans to Tiger Stadium in 1995, ranking 11th of the 14 teams in the American League.
