April 15, 1911: Detroit Tigers Famous Blizzard Game

Jon Harrison

The Detroit Tigers' famed "Blizzard Game" was held on April 15, 1911, when the snowfall was so thick that batters were making base hits on account of the ball getting lost in the snow. According to the website Stuff Nobody Cares About, the game was finally called when players could no longer see the pitcher as they stepped up to the plate. Look closely; the flying snow is visible in this shot from our Photo Friday archives. Find the full story here: http://stuffnobodycaresabout.com/…/baseball-in-a-blizzard-…/
