"Our great fans will enjoy the unique experiences and innovative offerings that PointsBet's personalized platform provides," Chris Granger, a group president for Ilitch Holdings, the company that represents the Tigers, said in a release announcing the partnership. "As we usher in legal and responsible sports betting, we look forward to the fan-friendly enhancements that it will make to the game-day experience in and around Comerica Park."

Financial terms of the partnership were not disclosed.

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred did not accidentally confess Wednesday on the Dan Patrick Show that it was always MLB’s intention to play a 60-game season, Manfred clarified Thursday what he meant.

“My point was that no matter what happened with the union, the way things unfolded with the second spike,’’ Manfred told USA TODAY Sports, “we would have ended up with only time for 60 games, anyway. As time went on, it became clearer and clearer that the course of the virus was going to dictate how many games we could play.’’
