Comerica Park

After an exhausting and eventful night in Windsor, my friends and I woke up at 10:30am, had breakfast in our hotel, crossed the border into Detroit, and went straight to Comerica Park for a game between the Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers. The home of the Tigers opened in 2000 and replaced Tiger Stadium. If you’re a baseball fan and you’re in Detroit during the season, Comerica Park is a must-see.

We missed the first inning due to a long line at the border but quickly made it to the parking lot across the street from the ballpark. As soon as we entered Comerica Park, I fell in love with it. It’s easily one of the most beautiful ballparks I’ve been to. We took our seats and watched a few innings of the game.

None of us were really interested in the game or in the mood for big crowds and hot weather, so we wandered around the park instead. Strolling around the concourse, we popped our heads out every few sections to experience a different angle.

One of the highlights Comerica Park is the statues in the outfield of former Tiger greats, such as Ty Cobb, Al Kaline, and Hank Greenberg.

The game went into an unexpected 10th inning and we decided to leave and head back Chicago. I’d be happy to go back any time. It’s a great place to watch a game, the atmosphere is wonderful, and the fans were friendly (just like every other sporting event I’ve attended in Detroit).

If you’re there from June to September, tours of Comerica Park are given on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Check the link above for more info on times and pricing.
