Detroit Tigers Games
Whether people are rooting for the Tigers, Pistons, Red Wings, or Lions, Detroit is undeniably a hot city for sports entertainment. The iconic city situated in southeast Michigan is one of the few places to have all of its major sports teams compete within city limits. The Detroit Tigers, who compete in Major League Baseball, are no exception.
The Detroit Tigers are unique in the world of baseball because the only Western League team located in the city where the team started. This is a rarity in baseball, especially because MLB started organizing in the 1800s. Many teams shifted cities and hopped states to find markets and settle into MLB. However, the Detroit Tigers started off as a minor league back in 1894 and have stayed there ever since. In addition, they have held their name longer than any other team in the American League. Their history in Detroit is well over a century old, a testament to the strength and resilience of the city itself.
Although the foundation of the Detroit Tigers is solid, their position in MLB and relation to other teams is not. For example, when it comes to rivals, the Tigers are not known for having a standout rival. Sometimes, rivalry spikes with regional neighbors, such as the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago White Sox, two other rustbelt cities. Other times, games between teams further out West get heated, such as the Kansas City Royals and Minnesota Twins. The Tigers have a strong fanbase, scattered across parts of Ohio, Michigan, Ontario, and even into Pennsylvania. Detroit is an impactful city in Midwest sports, regardless of which teams they face. Although they have had some rough seasons, they have won multiple world series (1935, 1968, 1984) and came close to world series victory of several other occasions (1907, 1909, 1934, 1987).
Today, when fans flock to Detroit to see the Tigers, they head to Comerica Park. Back in the early days of the league, from 1912 to 1999, the Detroit Tigers held their home base at Tiger Stadium. The nostalgic baseball park located in the Corktown neighborhood went by a number of names, including Navin Field and Briggs Stadium. Starting in 2000, the Tigers moved on to the now-loved Comerica Park. The downtown open-air location is named after Comerica Bank. It can seat over 40,000 fans, and it is conveniently connected to the Detroit People Mover, SMART, and other public transportation options.
People eager to chant “Let’s go Tigers! Let’s go!” and see sportsmen scattered on the field in orange, navy blue, and white are likely fans of the Tigers already. For newcomers to the team and the city's sports life, do not hesitate to pick up tickets and start following along today.
