Let’s Play Ball!

Here’s the thing, I’m not really a sports person.

If we’re friends and you try to talk football or basketball or, I don’t know, professional spulunking (is that considered a sport) I will most likely stare at you, smile a bit and nod while on the inside, I’m debating whether I want to get pizza or chips and guac when this conversation ends.

If we’re not friends and you try to talk sports to me, I’ll most likely give you a dead-inside stare and order a drink just to get through the next few minutes(no, I’m not socially awkward at ALL. What gave you that idea?).

However, I do have one exception: my Detroit Tigers.

If you’re from Detroit, visited Detroit or even passed through, you will know how seriously sports are taken here. It’s not one of those, I’m going to buy a t-shirt so I look cute and like I care when we all go to the bar, kind of towns.

It’s a live and breathe every single team, kind of town.

I will admit, I’m not the kind of person who will turn the game on, on a Tuesday night and stay up watching it. I’m more of a stay up to date on Twitter kind of girl (typical blogger, am-I-right)?

I will maintain however, that there is nothing in the world like going to a baseball game on a beautiful day.

Especially at Comerica Park.

Nothing says “hello spring” quite like a sunny day watching baseball.

First stop however, the Elwood.

Nestled right in-between Ford Field (football) and Comerica Park (baseball – for you out of towners), one of the top go-to places to grab a bloody mary and burger before the game or to cheer on your team with a beer in hand if you weren’t lucky enough to get tickets.

Now, it’s time for some baseball!

We have a little time before the game starts though, so come on, I’ll give you the tour.

If you’re reading this and live in Michigan, well you better get your butt downtown for a game. Baseball only lasts so many months and we have to take advantage of it!

If you don’t, then be sure to try and snag some tickets when you visit!

Whether you’re a Tigers fan or even a baseball fan, I’ve never been around fans as friendly and welcoming as those at Comerica – so don’t worry, you’ll fit right in!

Just make sure you carb up. Trust me.

Besides, calories don’t count at a baseball game. Right?

  1. Every time you blog about Detroit, it reminds me of Memphis. We Memphians take our Grizzlies (NBA) and Tigers (NCAA) teams very seriously. There is a ridiculous amount of city pride in our teams which I love! 🙂 Looks like an awesome sort of day at the stadium, friend! 🙂


  2. That diner is the cutest! And I LOVE that tiger statue; so many photo ops! I’m not a sports person (except NASCAR!) but here in Ohio Cleveland is a pretty big sports town! Haha! I’ve seen the Cavs and the Indians play live, but I really didn’t care much about the games. Hehe!


    1. It’s a joke here that you haven’t actually gone to a game if you don’t Instagram a picture of the Tigers out front! I’ve been to a NASCAR race once – I was so excited (who doesn’t love fast cars) but then ended up reading after lap 10. X
