Comerica Park & Detroit Tigers

One of the reasons we decided to make my work trip to Detroit a long weekend was that H could see Comerica Park & catch a Detroit Tigers game. We had bought tickets for Monday night's game against the Minnesota Twins.

Unfortunately, H had to change his flight and fly back to Houston at 6AM on Monday. So we decided to drive by the stadium on Sunday to see what we could see and tease him about skipping out on the game.

It's a beautiful new stadium, right in downtown Detroit. We were able to walk right up and take lots of good pictures from outside.

Although they have a brand new stadium, the Tigers weren't doing too hot. They started off the season with one of the worst records in the league.

They were very proud of their Tigers. There were huge and sort of scary statues of some very angry looking tigers.

The oversize bats and baseballs were also pretty neat, along with the spunky blue and orange everywhere.

There were also some unique tile mosaics around the stadium.

See? Mean and scary tigers! Everywhere!! Hundreds of them....

Comerica Park sits, literally, right next to Lion's Ford Field.

I was able to recruit a somewhat reluctant co-worker to attend the game with me Monday night.
We had great seats, that I still harass H with, only 8 rows up and just beyond 3rd base. I was much more interested in people watching and checking out the skyline, with all it's interesting buildings.

Maybe this is the reason they aren't winning too many games.

It was funny to see 2 former Astros players on the Tigers lineup, but I was more concerned about that 46 degrees!

I did watch a little bit of the game, but they were losing pretty bad by the 5th inning and I was getting really cold.

Just a few shots of the old Tiger Stadium, which was replaced with the new stadium in 2000.

It was kind of sad and depressing, along with all the other abandoned buildings in Detroit.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: We've finally got a new renter moving into the cottage! WOOHOO!

It was 46F that's why the hands were in the pocket!

I love those 3rd baseline seats. You get so many foul balls. I know because I caught one!!!!!

They might not have done great when you were there but the last few games they've been smokin!!!
