The playing field measures 102,000 sq. ft. of natural turf. The turf is a single variety of Kentucky Bluegrass. The single cultivar is called Moonlight. The field is mowed every day during the growing season. On game days, it is double cut and takes five hours to mow. The mowing height is 1 inch both on the infield and outfield. Underneath the grass is 10 inches of 100% USGA spec sand. Beneath that layer is a 4 inch layer of pea stone. Beneath the pea stone is a geotextile fabric separating it from the subgrade material and then miles of trenched drain tile throughout the entire playing field.
The sand in the root zone drains water at the rate of 14 inches per hour. The infield skin area (soil area) is considered a silt loam soil. It is more forgiving than the mound and plate area and allows the ball to take a softer hop. The mound and plate area are more firm to withstand the cleats of the hitters and pitchers landing and twisting in the same area over and over for long periods of time. They are considered clay soils by definition.
Promotional items have individual restrictions (e.g. first 10,000 guests, ages 14 and under, etc.). Dates and items are subject to change without prior notice. A game ticket does not ensure nor entitle the holder to a promotional item. Only one item will be distributed per person. Guests MUST be present to receive a giveaway item. Giveaway items are one per person, NOT one per ticket. Please be considerate of Comerica Park event associates and do not put them in an awkward position by asking that they break these policies. Go to tigers.com to check the Detroit Tigers Promotions and Giveaways schedule to verify games involving giveaways or special events. Leo's will no longer have promotional items on giveaway days.
RAIN CHECKS/GAME CANCELLATION
In the event that 5 innings of one game is not played, except if the Tigers are in the lead at the end of 4-1/2 innings, one of the following policies will apply:
1) When the canceled game is rescheduled on an open date or as part of a split day/night doubleheader with a specific start time for the rescheduled game, the original ticket will be valid for entry to the rescheduled game ONLY. (Exception: When the canceled game is rescheduled during the same homestand on an open date or as part of a split day/night doubleheader, the original ticket may be used for admission to the rescheduled game or may be exchanged for any future non Premium game in the next 12 months from the original game date.)
2) When the canceled game is rescheduled onto an existing game, thereby creating a traditional doubleheader where only one of the two games has a specific start time, the ticket for the originally scheduled game is valid for both games. The canceled game ticket is then invalid and subject to applicable exchange policy. If the canceled game is not rescheduled, the ticket may be exchanged for any future game during the next 12 months at the value stated. Ticket exchanges are subject to availability and all service charges or differences in value are non-refundable. Tickets may be redeemed at the Tigers Box Office or by mailing them to: Tigers Box office, 2100 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI 48201.
3) Complimentary tickets may not be exchanged under any circumstances and are invalid for use at the rescheduled game.
Specific information regarding each canceled game is available by calling (313) 471-BALL (2255) or by visiting tigers.com.
According to the rules of Major League Baseball, the home team is the sole judge as to conditions of the playing field, prior to the start of the game. Starting with the games after the All-Star break, during the final series of the season between two clubs in the home ballpark of either club, the umpires shall be the sole authority empowered to determine whether a game shall start or not. The umpire-in-chief shall be the sole judge as to whether and when play shall be suspended during a game because of unsuitable weather conditions or the unfit condition of the playing field; as to whether and when the play shall be resumed after such suspension; and as to whether and when a game shall be terminated after such suspension. He shall not call the game until at least 30 minutes after he has suspended play. He may continue the suspension as long as he believes there is a chance to resume play. The umpire-in-chief shall at all times try to complete a game. His authority to resume play following one or more suspensions of as much as 30 minutes each shall be absolute and he shall terminate a game only when there appears to be no reasonable possibility of completing the ballgame. If a game is postponed or not played because of inclement weather or other reason, please see the Rain Check/Game Cancellation policy posted above.
