Celebrate 2011 Tigerfest today at Comerica Park

The first signs of spring are beginning to emerge here in Detroit: The Tigers are on their winter tour and will be at Comerica Park today to mingle with fans and discuss the upcoming season.

The off-season has been good to the Tigers as they’ve been able to cut some serious baggage and to fill in some serious holes from last year.

There is a serious buzz building around Tigertown in anticipation of the upcoming season.  Tigerfest is a great way for fans to get re-acquainted with the returning players — and to get to know the new ones.  Comerica Park will be open to fans from 11am to 5pm.
