Tigers add more seats to Comerica Park

The Detroit Tigers have added 778 seats to Comerica Park, which will increase the ballpark’s seating capacity to 41,782 on Opening Day.

The seats have been added on risers along the main concourse behind existing seating sections and in newly created auxiliary sections on the Dew Deck/Pepsi Porch in right field. The seats in the new locations will cost between $12-$25 each and be available for all home games on the schedule, with the exception of Opening Day. Seats in these locations for the home opener against the Royals on March 31 have already been sold.

“With the unprecedented demand for Tigers tickets in 2008, we have been looking for opportunities to increase our seating capacity without impacting the aesthetics of Comerica Park,” said Tigers President, CEO & General Manager David Dombrowski. “These additions will provide more fans an opportunity to enjoy Tigers baseball this season.”

Riser Sections at 112, 113, 141, 142, 143: $25

Riser Sections at 144, 147, 148: $15

    Good news for the Tigers but to me it just adds up to fewer parking spaces.

    I just saw on Yahoo sports that Freddie Guzman cleared waivers and was assigned to Double A Erie…I guess Clete Thomas is going to make the roster after all.

    Maybe Leland sees another Hannahan in Clete.

    I’m excited about the new seats. Now that I’m working downtown I’ll be taking advantage of the afternoon games during lunch. It will probably be the only time I don’t have to worry about fighting the crowds.
