Comerica Park Review

Comerica Park entranceThe staff and readers of Pro Baseball Fans are pleased to bring you our review of Major League ball parks. In Detroit, Michigan, we find Comerica Park, the home field for the American League's Detroit Tigers. Comerica Park seats as many as 41,782 fans and replaced Tiger Stadium when it opened it's doors in 2000. Comerica Park is named by Comerica Bank, a bank that was formerly based in Detroit. Next door to Comerica Park is Ford Field, the home of the Detroit Lions and college football's MAC Championship Game and Motor City Bowl.

 

Features of Comerica Park

Immediately upon entering in the front entrance of Comerica Park, on the 1st base side of the 100 level, there is a carousel that is of course popular with the kids. This area included elephant ears, corn dogs and other fair-like foods as well as several video game systems pre-loaded with a MLB video game.

The main walkway/aisle of the 100 level did not feel at all like a ball park; it seemed like a street fair with vendors on both sides. The atmosphere was much like Comerica Park's neighbor, Ford Field, which also does not give the feel of a stadium until you approach the field. With a very wide area for fans to walk to and from their seats, this spacious walkway allowed for lines to form at the vendor windows without clogging up the aisle as badly as is common at other ball parks & stadiums.

Comerica Park Comerica Park carouselKnown as a pitcher's park, Center Field measures 420 feet from home plate with shrubbery above the outfield wall along with the General Motors Fountain. Behind the stands in left field stands several statues of Tiger greats including Al Kaline, Hal Newhouser, Hank Greenburg, Ty Cobb and more.
