Reporting from Detroit -- If the Detroit Tigers stage an improbable comeback and win this American League Championship Series against the Texas Rangers, they might want to award a playoff share to the grounds crew member who installed the third base bag in Comerica Park on Thursday. That canvas-covered object, 15 square inches and roughly four inches tall, might be as responsible for the Tigers' fending off elimination in the best-of-seven series as ace Justin Verlander and left fielder Delmon Young, who keyed a 7-5 Tigers victory in Game 5, were.

Several times this month, television cameras have caught the Rangers' CEO and president in his seat near the dugout gripping a baseball so tight it looks like he could squeeze the cover off of it. "It's hard being a fan," Ryan said.
