Justin Verlander asking Tigers fans to wear blue to Comerica Park Sunday

DETROIT — Last Sunday Ian Kinsler asked for sore throats when the Tigers returned home to play Game 3 of the ALDS against the Orioles. With the Tigers facing elimination this Sunday, the Tigers need fans as pumped up as they can be in support of the team.

Starting pitcher Justin Verlander took to Twitter Saturday night, calling for fans to choose a color and cover Comerica Park in the same said color. The hastag #colorcomerica was used for Verlander to choose between blue, white, and orange.

As the Tigers are playing the Orioles — whose primary color is orange — the option of orange was struck down rather rapidly. Blue was ultimately decided on, so now the Tigers are asking all fans to show up with screaming voices and Tiger-blue t-shirts.

While we're at it, if you are going to Sunday's game, the Lions are playing the Bills at 1 p.m. and downtown Detroit will be packed. Allow plenty of time to get downtown, as well as to park. I'd suggest at least a healthy two (or three) hour head start. It's going to be a little nuts.
