Comerica Park is a baseball stadium located in downtown Detroit, Michigan. It was constructed as a replacement for Tiger Stadium for the Detroit Tigers. It is located next door to Ford Field, the home of the Detroit Lions. Like many other sports venues constructed in recent years, the park is named after a corporate sponsor, in this case local bank Comerica Bank, who paid for the naming rights.

History

Groundbreaking for a new ballpark to replace Tiger Stadium for the Detroit Tigers was held on October 29, 1997 and the new stadium was opened to the public in 2000. At the time of construction, the scoreboard in left field was the largest in Major League Baseball.[1] The first game was held on April 11 against the Seattle Mariners. The new stadium is part of a downtown revitalization plan for the city of Detroit, which included the construction of Ford Field, adjacent to the park. In December 1998, Comerica Bank agreed to pay $66 million over 30 years for the naming rights for the new ballpark. Upon its opening, there was some effort to try to find a nickname for the park, with the abbreviation CoPa suggested by many [2], but that nickname has not gained widespread acceptance. It is often referred to simply as Comerica. The first playoff game at Comerica was played on October 6, 2006 against the New York Yankees. Groundbreaking is a traditional ceremony in many cultures that celebrates the first day of construction for a building or other project. ... is the 302nd day of the year (303rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Soon after it opened, Comerica Park received complaints from players and fans alike concerning its expansive outfield dimensions, which made it a difficult park for right-handed power hitters. The vastness of the outfield engendered the sarcastic nickname Comerica National Park. Although a few public figures (notably radio announcer Ernie Harwell) supported the dimensions, most agreed that the left-field wall, in particular, needed to be brought closer to home plate. Prior to the 2003 MLB season the club did so, moving the distance from left-center field from 395 to 370 feet (from 120 to 113 meters). This also removed the flagpole from the field of play, originally incorporated as an homage to Tiger Stadium. Two years later, the bullpens were moved from right field to an empty area in left field created when the fence was moved in. In place of the old bullpens in right field, 950 seats were added for a new capacity of 41,070.

Features

Outside of the main entrance to the stadium there is a tiger statue that is approximately 15 feet (4.6 m) in height. There are eight other heroic-sized tiger statues throughout the park, including two prowling on top of the scoreboard in left field. These tigers' eyes light up after a Tiger home run or a victory and the sound of a growling tiger plays as well. The nine tigers were created by New York Sculptor Michael Keropian. Along the brick walls outside of the park are thirty-three tiger heads with lighted baseballs in their mouths. For other uses, see Tiger (disambiguation). ...


At the left-center field concourse there are statues of all of the players whose numbers have been retired by the Tigers (with the exception of Jackie Robinson, whose number was retired in every MLB park in 1997). They include Al Kaline, Charlie Gehringer, Hal Newhouser, Willie Horton and Hank Greenberg. A statue of Ty Cobb is also there, but he does not have a number, as he played baseball before players began to wear numbers on their uniforms. These players' names, along with the names of Hall of Fame players who spent a significant part of their career with the Tigers, are also on a wall in left center field, and to them is added Ernie Harwell, the team's long time radio announcer. Harwell has a statue just inside the stadium on the first base side.

Criticism

Replacing popular Tiger Stadium, Comerica Park faced high expectations upon its opening, and many fans have criticized it. [3] Complaints about Comerica include its dimensions, an upper deck that sits significantly farther from the action than at Tiger Stadium, and a lack of cover for most seats, which can leave fans exposed to the elements. The park also faces south, which allows for a good view of the downtown skyline, but which also puts the setting sun in the faces of a large percentage of the crowd.


Some of the more traditional baseball fans have criticized the amount of non-baseball attractions at the park, notably the inclusion of a Ferris Wheel and Merry-go-round.[4] A Ferris wheel on the boardwalk in Ocean City, New Jersey, USA.

Trivia

  • During an 1999 episode of This Week in Baseball, the host of the show and a lucky fan came to the park to throw a baseball that was signed by the entire 1999 Tigers team into the dirt that was being dug up to make the home plate area of the current field.
