If the winter weather seemed a little bit warmer Friday, it might have something to do with TigerFest around the corner. Tickets for the annual offseason warmup event went on sale Friday morning.
This winter’s edition heads back to Comerica Park on Saturday, Jan. 22, and includes a lot of the events that get fans looking forward to baseball season. It’s usually a first chance for fans to meet some of the newest Tigers, though a roster of players expected to attend won’t be released until after the new year, and an opportunity for fans to get autographs from their favorite players. Team president/general manager Dave Dombrowski, manager Jim Leyland and others answer fan questions on the main stage. Fans can warm up with a self-guided tour through the Tigers clubhouse and a guided tour of the Champions Club and Ernie Harwell Media Center.
Tickets are available at tigers.com/tigerfest or by calling 866-66-TIGER. But hurry, since this usually ends up being a sold-out event pretty quickly once tickets go on sale.
