Tiger game

We are making a quick trip to Detroit Aug 9th & 10th and are thinking of taking in the Tigers game on Sunday Aug 10th. Do we need to get tickets in advance or are they readily available? The bleachers will be fine for us if it has good sightlines.

Any advice would be welcome.

They are selling out most games, especially on weekends. You should be able to get standing room at the gate, but even that has become overcrowded and it is tough to find a decent spot to watch. Even though I hate paying the ticket agent fees, for out of town games there is really no way of guaranteeing seats in advance.

I wouldn't gamble. As tev said, games sell out.

You can try the Tigers web site... also there is a ticket auction on the team's site I think it's done with Stub Hub. You can try SH separately or the local Craigslist.

Also give eBay a try too. I have had luck there, I bought my Indians tickets down at Progressive through eBay and I had no problems.

all excellant posts, I would just add always check the detroit tigers website first for tickets, but chances are, like already said, they are sold out. They also list original price ranges. It may help you shopping for tickets with the outlets, which are always more.


It's a beautiful ball park!
