Just a couple of quick notes on the eve of the Tigers last home game…
The Tigers should have topped the 2 million mark in attendance tonight. That would mark the first time since 2000 when Comerica Park opened. It will be interesting to see what the season ticket renewal rate is without the All Star incentive. What was most encouraging is that the Tigers drew quite well during July and August – regularly topping 30,000.
The Tigers announced today that they have extended agreements with Erie and West Michigan. Erie will continue to be the Tigers AA club through 2008, and the Whitecaps will be the low A affiliate through 2010.
Earlier this summer the team announced that Oneonta of the NY Penn league would continue to be the Rookie ball affiliate through 2010 as well.
I’ll be heading down to the final game tomorrow with the family. I’m looking forward to it, and hopefully the Tigers can close out the home season with a win.
