Get to the Park Early, Tigers Fans

New, 24 comments

For those of you heading out to Comerica Park this afternoon to catch the Tigers and Rays, the team advises you to get out there early to avoid some possible traffic jams.

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.
