The Detroit Creams joined the Western League (WL) in 1894 and played their home games at Boulevard Park. One year later the baseball club had a new nickname based on the Detroit Light Guard, which was a military unit named the “Tigers.” The Light Guard played significant roles in Civil War battles and the 1898 Spanish-American War. Upon entry into the major leagues, the ball club received permission from the Light Guard to use its trademark.
