A cold, potentially wet Friday afternoon will not keep Detroit Tigers fans away as Opening Day is sold out, a huge blow in the outfield & more.
Welcome to week 4 of the Sunday “MCB Notes” a recap of all things Detroit Tigers & MLB and anything else that catches our eye. This week’s recap includes how the Tigers are going to address the loss of Riley Greene, Spencer Torkelson makes the team, Derek Hill & Andrew Chafin and how a Tigers trade comes full circle.
Opening Day 2022 things you will need to know
For Friday’s home opener, there are limited tickets available. You can find tickets at tigers.com/tickets. For anyone who is heading down to Comerica Park and wants to hang out with other fellow fans, the Tigers are hosting the Miller Lite Opening Day Tailgate in the McLaren Garage Plaza and along Witherell Street.
All the tickets are now digital and the Tigers wanted to remind fans to download tickets to their digital wallets before heading down. From my personal experience, phone networks slow down when there are many people on them, so take advantage of your Wi-Fi at home and just download the tickets at home versus 20 minutes before you head in.
From the Woodward Sports to Dave & Chuck the Freak, there will be lots of various media outlets hosting a tailgate or party. It might sound cliche but it’s true, Detroit Tigers Opening Day is a holiday, even if it’s not a legal one.
There will be a giveaway as fans will receive a 2022 Season Magnet Schedule as Opening Day is presented by Rocket Mortgage. Here are the rest of the events going on at Comerica Park throughout the season. Detroit is 68-52-1 all time on Opening Day. Lifetime against the White Sox on Opening Day, they have a record of 11-8. The one tie was on April 22nd, 1904 against the St. Louis Browns, in case you were curious.
