The Lions' third preseason game will be played at the adjacent Ford Field at 1 p.m., which means you might be running into departing crowds if you arrive at the ballpark near the Tigers' 4:05 p.m. start. But hey, if the Colts run out to a big lead over the Lions, maybe people will be leaving earlier. Unless they want to see Matthew Stafford in action.
Anyway, as a public service for the people of Tiger Town, we're passing along the message. The Tigers are encouraging fans to arrive at the CoPa around 3 p.m. Gates will open at 2:30 p.m. And if you need a little extra motivation to get there early, the first 7.500 fans 14 and younger get a Curtis Granderson replica glove. Do it for your kid.
