The 2023 MLB Season is in full swing, and the Detroit Tigers season is in progress.
Judging by the MLB odds and most (every?) prognosticators, expectations aren’t high for the 2023 Tigers.
But all is not lost for Detroit sports fans; Comerica Park will still be a great place to be during the spring and summer.
This year marks the final season for future Hall of Famer Miguel Cabrera. While the legend is far from his Triple Crown days, there are still limited opportunities to see him live in Detroit.
With new President Scott Harris taking over management, 2023 still marks the start of another new rebuild that Tigers fans hopes will come together sooner rather than later.
Either way, the Tigers organization has a lot of special nights and promotions planned for the Tigers fans during the season. We’ve got all of it covered.
Where to buy Detroit Tigers tickets
The Detroit Tigers website would be our first recommendation for finding tickets. They offer single-ticket and other special ticket bundle options to purchase.
If you aren’t finding the seats you would like, third-party retail markets are your next option. You can find Tigers tickets on StubHub, TicketMaster and SeatGeek. However, seats could carry larger fees upon checkout.

How to get to Comerica Park
Comerica Park is located at 2100 Woodward Avenue in Detroit.
When planning a trip to the ballpark, Comerica Park recommends the following based on the direction you are coming from:
- From the North: Take M-10 South into downtown Detroit and exit at Grand River (M-5). Head south on Grand River to the NB I-75 service drive. Use that to get to Brush Street. Take a right on Brush St. to access Ford Field and Comerica Park parking.
- From the South: Take I-75 North onto northbound I-275. Take I-275 to eastbound I-94. Use I-94 to get into downtown Detroit.
- From the East: Follow westbound I-94 and exit onto southbound I-75. Follow I-75 until it merges into southbound I-375. Exit at Madison Ave (left lane exit) or Lafayette to access Ford Field and Comerica Park parking.
- From the West: Use eastbound I-94 and exit onto southbound M-10. Exit M-10 at Grand River (M-5) and follow the same route as directed from the north.

Best eating options at Comerica Park
While Comerica Park may not be Lafayette Coney Island or American Coney Island, it still isn’t lacking in food and drink options.
Comerica Park has over three dozen different bars, restaurants or concession offerings throughout the stadium.
It wouldn’t be an Ilitch-owned park without offering Little Caesars pizza in multiple areas.
Some notable favorites include street tacos or nachos from Authentic Mexican, cheesesteaks from Brushfire Grill, a coney dog from Detroit Coneys or some shredded BBQ pork mac & cheese from the Barbecue Stand.
What would a Detroit venue be without a wide selection of the top craft beers from around the state and country? Comerica Park has you covered for all your craft beer needs. Beer Hall is a recommended stop behind section 133.
For anyone with dietary requirements or restrictions, they are suggested to visit the Guest Services Offices near sections 131, 210 and 330. Dietary information is also available at any concession stand.
Comerica Park is now a cashless venue, so all purchases will be made using a debit or credit card, or digital payments.
