Hot dogs, peanuts and beer are baseball parks staples, and at Comerica Park, so is pizza – thanks to Little Caesars. Detroit Tigers fans await this season. Some are ethnic; a few are even healthful.
A few weeks ago, the Tigers gave us a peek at and a taste of the new offerings. Some fans may consider them pricey, but the ballpark is also offering some value items.
Keep in mind that Comerica's updated bag policy allows you to enter the park with a backpack as long as it does not. exceed 16 inches by 16 inches by 8 inches. Soft-sided coolers that fit within that size are permissible, too. You can bring in your own bottled water as long as it's factory sealed. Snacks such as bags of peanuts are allowed.
