Tigger's appearance at the World Series

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Some people will be lucky enough to be attending 2012 World Series games at Comerica Park.

One of them will be Joe Dallett of Wyoming.

Dallett won't be hard to miss, and the network cameras are certain to find him.  He will be dressed from head-to-toe in Tiger -- or "Tigger" -- wear.  "Tigger," as in the character from the Winnie the Pooh cartoons.

Dallett says he is the biggest Tigers fan in the Grand Rapids area.  He says he watched 140 games on TV this year.

Dallett originally bought the costume for his wife, but plans to wear it when the Tigers return from San Francisco for World Series games four.
