The Tigers have kicked off their 2023 season on the road. But they will play the Boston Red Sox at a home opener on April 6. In preparation for that, on Friday, the Tigers held their annual ‘what’s new” event. The event showcases what’s to come in the stadium.
Some of the new features for the 2023 season include “313 Value Games,” small business partnerships, and new menu items. All Tuesday home games at Comerica Park will be “313 Value Games,” with $19 lower-level tickets available. “313 Value Games” will also have $3 bottled water and fountain drinks, $1 chips, and $3 hot dogs.
Chevy Sunday Kids Days will return, and the Meijer Sunday Family Value Deal starts at $79. This includes four upper-level tickets, four hot dogs, and four fountain drinks. The lower-level ticket package starts at $99 for a family of four, including four fountain drinks and four hot dogs.
They are also partnering with several small businesses in the city of Detroit. Bert’s Marketplace, Breadless, Green Dot Stables, Taqueria El Rey, The Lobster Food Truck, and Yum Village will all be at Comerica Park this season. According to the news release, Green Dot Stables menu items will be available in the Meijer Market outside Section 143, and Taqueria El Rey’s Mexican fare will be available for purchase in the Miller Lite Market near Section 149. Bert’s Marketplace signature items will be available inside the Brushfire Grill. Breadless, The Lobster Food Truck, and Yum Village will have select menu items available for Tigers fans.
There will also be multiple giveaways during the season. The first 15,000 fans in attendance for every Saturday home game can receive giveaway items.
Fridays will be a “Party in the Park,” featuring fireworks, live music, and entertainment. Chevy Sunday Kids Days are also returning when young fans can get player autographs on the concourse, run the bases after the games and enjoy free rides on the Ferris Wheel and the Hi-Chew Carousel.
The social space in the right field balcony has been rebranded as the “Comerica Landing.” It will feature The Miller Lite Home Run Happy Hour which will be available the first hour after gates open for home games. It will have $5 food and beverage items and $9 value meals in the Comerica Landing. The Miller Lite Home Run Happy Hour will begin 90 minutes before the first pitch for Friday home games as part of “Party in the Park” Fridays.
In response to feedback from stakeholders and fans, TV rightsholders, and baseball operations, they have changed start times for weeknight home games this season. They used to start at 7:10 p.m. and now they’ll start at 6:40 p.m.
