Big League Stew - MLB

Presenting images from the Detroit Tigers party at Oakland, where Friday night they clinched their first AL Central title since the 1987.

Closer Jose Valverde(notes), who got the final three outs to record his 45th save in 45 opportunities, frequently found himself in the cross hairs of photogs from the Associated Press, Getty Images and US Presswire.

He wasn't the only one; Brandon Inge(notes) — with his innovative and amusing snorkel get-up to protect his eyes from champagne and beer mist — also starred.

Enjoy the Tigers celebration, the first of the 2011 season!
