TigerFest Sells Out

The Tigers announced today that TigerFest 2007 is a sell out. Expected attendance is in excess of 12,000 fans. Unfortunately I waited too long so my son and I won’t be part of the throng.

If you were planning on seeing one of the 30 players at TigerFest your other option includes trying to catch up with the team at a caravan stop. Here is the full schedule:

A glance in today’s sport section shows that many players are sticking around on Sunday to do autograph appearances. But unlike years past when the going rate was $10-20 for an auto it looks like it will cost you at least $40. Ah, the price of success.
