The Motor City. Motown. Rock City. Our fourth stop on our 13-game circuit was Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan. We arrived at the stadium just as the gates opened and made our way to the Beer Hall where we had some dinner. We each had our first ever beer at a baseball game and as good as they were, we will probably never have another one in the interest of saving eight bucks a pop.
Comerica Park was one of the most family-friendly parks that we have seen so far. Chiquita even got a ball from one of the ushers – he told us that Curtis Granderson hit it out of the park in batting practice. For baseball purists, the game was a great one. Ervin Santan of the Angels and Justin Verlander of the Tigers kept the game scoreless for the first 8 innings. The Angels pulled it off 2-1 and then we were treated to a Friday night fireworks show – which were launched from center field.
From Detroit we headed to Toronto (more on this game coming up) and then we are off for a couple days in Washington DC as we begin a stretch of 8 days/games in a row starting on Tuesday.
Here are the pictures from Detroit…
