DETROIT (WWJ) – Can spring be that far off when Detroit Tigers fans are selecting their seats at Comerica Park for the upcoming season?
Juanita Fergeson was looking at purchasing season tickets for the first time:
“Oh, you bet, this is the year they are going to go all the way,” she told WWJ’s Beth Fisher.
Joe McDaniel of Davison knows exactly where he wants to be sitting during the homes games at the ballpark … he’s looking along the first base line in Section 117.
“We had that a few years ago … and we really liked that section. It’s got a good view of the whole park … lot of foul balls,” laughed McDaniel.
He tells WWJ that he ready for some warm weather.
“I was ready for spring and baseball last month … it’s just taking too long to get here,” McDaniel said.
McDaniel and many Tigers fans think the team will make it back to the World Series this year.
Sean O’Connor of Warren bought a package on the first base line: “If it was a nice winter I’d be excited for baseball, I love baseball.”
O’Connor and his wife Mary are such fans of the Tigers that they’re heading down to spring training.
“I can not sleep at night, I will not be able to sleep at night until we clinch the World Series,” said Mary O’Connor.
