Designed to have the same blend of new and old architectural highlights of other recent baseball stadiums (Atlanta's Turner Field and Cleveland's Jacob's Field to name but a couple), Comerica has created a great location to watch a major league baseball game. The new home of the Detroit Tigers has become more than just a baseball stadium but has evolved into a great place to take the family. Starting at the front entry plaza you'll find a huge statue of a Tiger with a baseball perfect for posing your family or friends against for a picture. Notice also that tiger heads dominate the outer facade much like gargoyles at ancient European cathedrals. As you enter the ballpark you'll find a carousel and concession stands galore. When you reach your seats you'll notice that unlike Tiger Stadium there are no obstructed views here. In fact, you'll feel extremely close to the action. Pay attention to the huge tiger dominated scoreboard in left field, the retired numbers in left center field and the view of downtown Detroit over the center field bleachers. As with any new stadium, ticket prices have gone up from the old ballpark as have attendance. So take the family and enjoy a great game at a great new ballpark!
