I don't believe I have ever attended a Detroit Tigers home opener, but I know many of you have and I know a lot of people that are going this Friday too. Some of my friends actually go inside of the ballpark to watch the game, but a majority of my friends are there for the party. I am not going to lie, now that I know Jack White is performing the National Anthem, I do wish I was going.

Lucky for me, and anyone else who will not be there - we have the internet. What a time to be alive. The game Friday at 1:10 PM, by 1:12 PM a video of Jack White and his band performing, should be all over YouTube.

Please note Comerica Park does not allow purses or bags into the park, yes that rule does include Detroit Tigers baseball games too (not just concerts). The bag policy is explained below,

All bags, purses and clutches are now prohibited, with medical or diaper bags being the exceptions. Single compartment wallets smaller than 5” x 7” x 1.5”, with or without a handle or strap are permitted.

This seems to be normal for all venues anymore, but it is an easy rule to forget. Trust me, I had to learn the hard way. You can click here for more on Comerica Park and additional venue policies.

Here is to a great day of baseball this Friday - Go Tigers!
