Comerica Park – Detroit, Mi
Grrrrr-eat things are happening for the tiniest Tigers fans at Comerica Park! When they’ve had their fill of watching the game, little knuckleballers can play some ball of their own, just inside Gate B. Four bucks gets each hitter 10 tries at bat in the batting cages, and three bucks buys four pitches on the speed pitch mound. If they prefer watching to playing, and still need a break, tiny fans can ride a ferocious tiger on the ornate carousel, or load into a car on the Fly Ball Ferris Wheel.
All Star Play: When families take in a Sunday home game, rides on the Fly Ball Ferris Wheel are free! Plus, li’l sluggers can enjoy face painting during the game, and afterwards, they can get in on base running action.
