How the Detroit Tigers Are Keeping You Safe on Opening Day

The Detroit Tigers are about to greet over 8,000 fans to Comerica Park beginning on Opening Day today under Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) rules that will look a lot different than Opening Day in previous years, WXYZ reported.

“Tigers baseball is back, and we couldn’t be more excited to begin welcoming our great fans to Comerica Park again,” said Chris Granger, Group President, Sports & Entertainment, Ilitch Holdings, Inc in the WXYZ article. “Safety is our top priority, and we have developed and invested in a plan that allows us to confidently provide fans a safe and entertaining experience. We’ve missed our fans greatly and can’t wait to celebrate the start of the season with them, when the first pitch is thrown on Opening Day in Detroit.”

Fans will be seated in pods with a minimum of six feet of social distancing between them.

Facemasks will be required except when eating or drinking. Neck gaiters, bandanas and masks with halves are not allowed, the article added.

All fans will be required to complete a Gameday Wellness survey no more than 24 hours before entering Comerica Park, and all sales will be cashless, per the article. Bags, purses and clutches are also not allowed — but medical and diaper bags are allowed.
