Where did the Detroit Tigers get their name and why are they called it?

Although it is not known exactly how the Tigers came to be known as such, there are many theories. One explains that Detroit players wore black stockings with orange stripes, white another theory explains that the team’s manager at the time called his team the Tigers. In a book written about the history of the team’s stadium, the author explains that the team name was chosen because the Detroit Light Guard military was known as The Tigers.
