Former Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander got emotional during a video tribute played on the scoreboard at Comerica Park before Monday's game.

As Verlander was warming up, the team played a two-screen video tribute, with one showing highlights from Verlander's illustrious career in Detroit with the other showing his live reaction.

It ended with a graphic saying, "Thank you Justin!" before he walked off the field, tipping his cap to the fans and being visibly emotional.

The fans gave him several standing ovations before the game started and as he took the field.
