First Detroit Tigers Game!

Khanh's birthday was September 7th (he's a quarter of a century old!) and we celebrated by going to our very first Tigers baseball game with my mom and her boyfriend. Oh my goodness! Why didn't anyone tell me how much fun professional baseball is? The fans, sounds, smells, and sights all won me over before we even stepped foot into Comerica Park. When attending a Tigers game, it's an unspoken rule that you have to take a picture with the 15-foot tall tiger sculpture in front of the main stadium entrance. There are actually nine over-sized tigers throughout the ballpark, including two at the top of the scoreboard.

Once we were inside the stadium, we walked all the way around to look at the various attractions offered. Some things for kids were a ferris wheel shaped like baseballs, a merry-go-round with nothing but tigers on it and simulated fast-pitch. When we got back to our seats, the Tigers were on the field warming up. This was happening right in front of us...

Are they stretching? 

 We were lucky enough to see Miguel Cabrera hit a home run and watch the Tigers beat the San Francisco Giants 6-1!

When we left I told Khanh that we definitely have attend a game again. We'll see you next year, Comerica.

Have you ever been to a professional sporting event and instantly fell in love with the sport?
