He told CBS Sport’s Will Burchfield: ‘Every Tigers game I’ve ever been to I’ve not had a shirt. 

‘That’s apart from one when I had it off and they made me put it back on. Don’t know the reasoning, don’t want to argue I enjoyed the game and have a good time. 

‘People laugh at me a lot. My son in law says they want good pictures of me because they’re young and they like doing that.’ 

Fans were quick to praise Voz’s defiance against the elements and dedication to the Tigers of Twitter.
