The Lakeland Tigers are a minor league affiliate of the Detroit Tigers, who make Lakeland their spring training home. The Lakeland Tigers are members of the Class A Florida State League and play their home games at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland. In 2007, the name of the team was changed to the Lakeland Flying Tigers to reflect the fact that its home field, Joker Marchant Stadium, was built on the site of the former Lodwick School of Aeronautics, which trained British and American pilots for service in World War II.

This collection consists of game programs, scorecards, and team photographs of the Lakeland Tigers.
