Here are Ron Farmer's photos from Meet the Tigers Night Thursday evening at Price Field, where fans, family members, friends and some members of the 1958 Tigers baseball team (the only Tigers team to ever play for the state baseball title) showed up to wish the 2019 Tigers baseball team luck.

The Tigers play Midlothian in a best-of-three series, beginning Friday at Dallas Baptist University. The winner of the 5A Region II Championship series advances to the UIL state tournament next week at Dell Diamond in Round Rock.
