TigerFest is back Jan. 26 at Comerica Park

TigerFest is back after a one-year hiatus. The annual winter warmup event that gets Detroit looking forward to baseball season, which was tabled last year due to stadium renovations, will take place on Jan. 26, 2013 from 11am-5pm at Comerica Park.

The Tigers officially announced the return on Saturday morning. While a list of every player scheduled to attend doesn’t come until January, the press release put out Saturday includes Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander, Prince Fielder and Torii Hunter.

The setup is much the same as before: Lots of opportunities for autographs (including a kids-only line), photos with players, home clubhouse and other tours, seminars and interviews, and ice sculptures. In addition, the Tigers are giving away a Miguel Cabrera Triple Crown pennant to every fan as they make their way through the entrance gate.

If you’ve been to TigerFest before, you know the deal on the weather. Most of the attractions will either be indoors or will be heated and covered, but with passageways in between and some of the events quite popular, it’s best to dress for January in Detroit.

Tickets are $25 for adults and $12 for kids age 12 and under, and go on sale next Friday at 10am online at tigers.com/tigerfest and by phone at 866-66-TIGER.

Been hearing talk about free agent 3rd sackers being needed around baseball. Haven’t heard a sniff about Brandon Inge being mentioned though.

Inge had surgery on his shoulder in mid-September. He likely still has at least a couple months before he’s ready for baseball activity.

Thanks Jason. Still surprised that there has been no interest in him.
