DETROIT – For the second consecutive year, TigerFest will be held at Comerica Park, with the 2008 version scheduled for Saturday, January 12 from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Tickets for the 14th annual winter baseball event, presented by StubHub! will go on sale on Tuesday, December 4 at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased online at www.tigers.com/tigerfest or by calling 866-66-TIGER (84437). The cost of admission will be $12 for adults and $6 for kids 14-and-under. Children three and under are admitted for free.
Based upon the success of hosting the event at Comerica Park in 2007, the event returns to the home of the Tigers for the second straight year. TigerFest allows fans to interact with their favorite Tigers players and coaches through autograph sessions, photo booths and seminars. In addition, fans will have the opportunity to tour many unique areas of the ballpark including the Tigers’ Clubhouse, Chevrolet Champions Club and the Press Box.
Fan activities will also include Major League batting cages, a Tigers speed pitch cage and a Tigers historic museum area. Youngsters will be able to hit in a miniature Home Run Derby, swing in the junior T-ball area, play video games, have their face painted and more.
Most access areas within the event will be heated and covered as the Tigers create the ultimate “think summer” experience in the middle of winter. However, the Tigers encourage all fans to dress according to the weather as some passageways may not be protected from seasonal elements.
Additional details, including players scheduled to appear at the event, will be announced in early January. For further details and the latest updates, please visit www.tigers.com/tigerfest.
