Hello all,

I'll be attending the Sox-Tigers game in Detroit next Tuesday. I've never been to Comerica, so I'm just trying to get the scoop on the park. What grub do you guys suggest, what activities etc

I've never been to comerica, but I recommend you get to the hot dog stand early because Bartolo and Miguel Cabrera will probably clean them out before the game starts.

I've been to Comerica park twice, the fans have never given me a problem there so they seem like down to earth nice people. Comerica park looks huge the first time your in there, there's usually a good number of Sox fans there so you won't be alone. The park is nice but its kinda boring. They have all typed of food there from what I've seen.

Well, I would pretty much just grab a hot dog, beer, and watch the game, but that's just me. :cool:

I think I remember there being a little play area for kids (with like a merry-go-round) so if you have little ones that's probably a must. Otherwise, I don't think there's anything incredible to do at the actual park... There are a few nice places to grab a bite outside, though... Chelios's restaurant was pretty good, IMO.

Grab a coney dog (sp) and a cold beer. I think Comerica is a really beautiful park so you should enjoy the game.

They have LaBatt Blue Light as a domestic. Drink up!

I'll be there Monday!

They make roasted almonds at a stand behind homeplate and put assorted toppings on them like cinnamon.

Also, they have a pretty nice souvenir/hall-of-fame gift shop at the entrance near the left-field corner.

I'd get there early and just walk around the park and check out all of the sight-lines, especially for batting practice.

Hockeytown across the street is a dump, IMHO.

I will be at the game on Monday if anybody here wants to stop by to say hello. I'm in 216, row B, seats 3/4. Just say "Hey Rob" and I'll figure it out.

If it's your first visit I suggest you take a lap around the main concourse. You can still see the field from everywhere and that'll allow you to see all the extras. There' statues in LF of Cobb, Greenberg, Gehringer, Kaline, Horton, and Newhouser. They have little museum type stands setup throughout that talks about Tiger history. There's also a statue of Ernie Harwell in the main entrance area. Near the statue is another museum that has lots of cool things in it, but you'll have to look for it, it looks like it is a retail shop. No matter what seats you have you can go anywhere in the park to walk around.

If you like peanuts there's always a guy selling them at the Corner of Adams and Woodward. He's been doing it for years. Since Tiger Stadium days.

A good place to eat/drink before hand is the Detroit Beer Co. (

Let me know if you have any more questions. Parking, etc.

Get 'em on the outside, cheaper than on the inside?

Yes. "$2 here, $4 inside" or something like that. He's got different flavors too.

After the fireworks on Fridays when we drive up Michigan Ave. we'll see him riding his bike and lugging his little trailer behind it.

A few of these would be a good start:
