In Game

Comerica Park was built as part of a downtown revitalization plan for the city of Detroit, and the park has done just that. Comerica Park has given an already loyal fan base even more of a reason to love their team. The Tigers did an excellent job of building a park that offers not only great sightlines but also a beautiful view of downtown Detroit.

What Comerica Park lacks in history, it more than makes up for it with its number of amenities and tributes to Tigers legends. All around the park you’ll see tributes to past Tigers greats including Ty Cobb and Al Kaline and there are tons of other things to check out at the game including a Ferris Wheel and carousel.

To top it all off, Comerica Park is home to some great food vendors as well. Here you’ll find a wide array of culinary options including a Coney quesadilla, fried-jalapeno-topped deviled eggs on bacon, and pork belly bacon just to name a few.

Comerica Park offers it all including lots of amenities, tons of historical displays, and some great concessions placing Comerica Park near the top of the list of ballparks that fans must visit.

Things to check out

Tiger Hats

The Tigers home cap is one of the most recognizable in all of baseball, particularly because it has barely changed over the years. The simplistic, navy blue hat with a white English D has been the symbol for Detroit fans everywhere; they don’t need or want any cartoonish gimmicks for a logo. They’re classic, genuine, old school baseball fans through and through.

Tiger Growling/Eyes Light Up

Whenever the Tigers score a run, the sound of a tiger growling is played throughout Comerica Park, and the two tiger statues on the scoreboard have eyes that light up.

Fight Songs

  1. Eye of the Tiger

    Played at key moments throughout the game including as a rally-starter. When the song is being played, take a look at the Tiger’s eyes on the scoreboard; they light up!

    Rising up, back on the street
    Did my time, took my chances
    Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet
    Just a man and his will to survive

    So many times it happens too fast
    You trade your passion for glory
    Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
    You must fight just to keep them alive

    It’s the eye of the tiger
    It’s the thrill of the fight
    Rising up to the challenge of our rival
    And the last known survivor
    Stalks his prey in the night
    And he’s watching us all with the eye of the tiger

    Face to face, out in the heat
    Hanging tough, staying hungry
    They stack the odds still we take to the street
    For the kill with the skill to survive

    It’s the eye of the tiger
    It’s the thrill of the fight
    Rising up to the challenge of our rival
    And the last known survivor
    Stalks his prey in the night
    And he’s watching us all with the eye of the tiger

    Rising up, straight to the top
    Had the guts, got the glory
    Went the distance, now I’m not gonna stop
    Just a man and his will to survive

    It’s the eye of the tiger
    It’s the thrill of the fight
    Rising up to the challenge of our rival
    And the last known survivor
    Stalks his prey in the night
    And he’s watching us all with the eye of the tiger

    The eye of the tiger
    The eye of the tiger
    The eye of the tiger
    The eye of the tiger

  2. Don’t Stop Believing

    Just a small town girl
    Livin’ in a lonely world
    She took the midnight train goin’ anywhere
    Just a city boy
    Born and raised in south Detroit
    He took the midnight train goin’ anywhere

    A singer in a smokey room
    A smell of wine and cheap perfume
    For a smile they can share the night
    It goes on and on, and on, and on

    [Chorus]
    Strangers waiting
    Up and down the boulevard
    Their shadows searching in the night
    Streetlight people
    Living just to find emotion
    Hiding somewhere in the night

    Working hard to get my fill
    Everybody wants a thrill
    Payin’ anything to roll the dice
    Just one more time
    Some will win, some will lose
    Some were born to sing the blues
    Oh, the movie never ends
    It goes on and on, and on, and on

    [Chorus]

    Don’t stop believin’
    Hold on to the feelin’
    Streetlights, people

    Don’t stop believin’
    Hold on
    Streetlight people

    Don’t stop believin’
    Hold on to the feelin’
    Streetlight people
