Fans Get Pre-Season Fun At TigerFest

DETROIT (WWJ) It may be frigid outside, but in a few months it’ll be warm and time for baseball at Comerica Park.

Saturday during Tigerfest at Comerica was a chance for fans to meet players and coaches before spring training. 

Second baseman Scott Sizemore is hoping for a great season. “For me this year, I kinda had a chip on my shoulder ….. I had a lot of ground to make up also, so I started a little earlier than I normally would. I think I started the third week in October, started working out four times a week, and you know started doing some more baseball stuff . So I’m looking forward to spring training getting out there and you know, showing everybody what I got.”

The sold out Tigerfest featured autograph sessions, player photos, and behind the scene tours.

Tigers slugger Magglio Ordonez was asked if he was going to hit a lot of home runs this season.

 “Well, I don’t  focus on hitting home runs. I just focus to, you know, to be healthy and try to play every day.  I know if you play every day  the numbers they’re going to be there , so I’m 100 percent. I’m working really hard and looking forward to having a great season.” Ordonez said.

Tickets are on sale for the Tigers upcoming season.

    Having been to the last 4 TigerFests, this was the WORST orginized one of all. They started cutting lines off because they were too long!! What are you there for but to wait (and I mean wait) in line. We got 2 autographs then after standing in line for 1hr 45 min found the same 2 players at the table again. If they don’t change the set-up my son and I are done with this waste of time.
