Did you know?
As we travel from one Major League Baseball stadium to the next, we are really enjoying how each stadium is completely different and has its own character, history, and architecture. Here are a few of the unusual facts about Comerica Park that we found especially interesting.
Facts Unique to
FUN FEATURES OF THE PARK
An ornate carousel featuring 30 hand-painted tigers and two chariots is located at the base of the food court behind the first base area. The ride is fully wheelchair-accessible.
Fly Ball Ferris Wheel
Located on the third base side of the park in the Brushfire Grill, this 50-foot Ferris wheel features cars shaped like baseballs that can seat up to five passengers and is wheelchair-accessible.
The Tigers celebrate six of their all-time great players with a series of unique statues located along the left centerfield wall. The statues are cast in stainless steel and capture the essence of some of the greatest Tigers in action–Ty Cobb, Charlie Gehringer, Hank Greenberg, Willie Horton, Al Kaline and Hal Newhouser. Each is perched atop a granite pedestal and reaches about 13 feet in height.
The centerfield wall features a fountain that produces a stunning “liquid fireworks” display. It is synchronized to music and changing lights and is used to celebrate home runs and other in-game moments.
Our Reflections on the Game
Advice and reflections from the Glanville Team
Thoughts from James
Comerica will be in my top 5 ball fields! I loved the BIG white tigers out front and the stripy ones near the big screen. The BIG screen was awesome! Our seats were amazing!! It was like watching MLB from your own back yard! And……they served ICEES! There is something about Comerica that is just all American Baseball! James
I would have to agree and echo everything James said! In addition, I will add a little more description to the chairs: They were BIG and padded, with tables in between to hold your food and drinks AND they had a huge amount of leg room! This was a treat for baseball stadium seekers! In addition to serving James a cold beverage, they brought me Chardonnay! Way to go Detroit!!! Comerica was a great experience Go TIGERS! Christie
