Fans line up at Comerica Park for tickets

Jim Dunn of Center Line (in photo, left) and Frank Gonzalez of Detroit were among the fans who picked up numbered wristbands Friday afternoon and came back Saturday morning. A random drawing turned up Dunn’s number first, giving him the first chance to buy tickets.

The drawing put Dunn in the front of the line, which wrapped around Comerica Park by the time the box office opened for business.

Tickets remain on sale Saturday afternoon at the box office as well as at, in person at select Meijer locations and by phone at 866-66-TIGER
