The Colorado Rockies are visiting Detroit this weekend, and there’s more than just Detroit Tigers fans celebrating Miguel Cabrera’s 3000th hit in the forecast for Comerica Park.
In fact, the weather Friday night in Detroit doesn’t look all that promising at the moment, although the rest of the weekend looks like it will improve and warm by quite a bit for Saturday and Sunday.
So it’ll be a little touch-and-go whether Friday night’s game will be delayed, but it looks good otherwise.
