Tigerfest 2008

The Tigers have sent information to [edit:]some[/edit] season ticket holders about this winter’s version of Tigerfest. It will be on January 12th and once again it will be hosted at Comerica Park. Of course the nice thing about holding it at an outdoor venue is that you don’t have to worry about the ice sculptures melting – for like 6 weeks.

I am a little surprised that they’ll be doing it at Comerica again, because reports from last year were that despite portable heaters the venue was still cold as well as very congested. I’ll give the organization the benefit of the doubt though and will trust that they’ll take what they learned last year to try and alleviate those problems.

No word yet on when tickets will go on sale to the general public, but it did sell out last year so I’ll let you know when I hear something.

UPDATE: Info on tickets:

Tickets for the 14th annual winter baseball event, presented by StubHub! will go on sale on Tuesday, December 4 at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased online at www.tigers.com/tigerfest or by calling 866-66-TIGER (84437).
