All-You-Can-Eat seats on Tigers' menu
Individual and group tickets offer new option
DETROIT -- Tigers fans looking to get more food with their fastballs now have the opportunity to buy "All-You-Can-Eat" seats at Comerica Park.
Following a trend that has been building across baseball and other sports, the Tigers on Wednesday introduced a selection of seats that allows fans an unlimited supply of hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken tenders, popcorn, vegetables, pasta salad and soda.
The All-You-Can-Eat seating, available in both individual and group tickets, will be available for all 81 home games. Group seating, located on the upper suite level, goes on sale in early February.
According to the Tigers, the idea came about by popular demand.
"At our fans' request, we are excited to provide another unique baseball experience at Comerica Park for 2010," Steve Harms, Tigers vice president for corporate sponsorships and ticket sales, said in a statement. "The all-you-can-eat seating gives fans another value-based seating option in an effort to remain Detroit's No. 1 sports value."
Detroit is the latest market to try it out. Sixteen of the 30 Major League teams offered all-you-can-eat seating in some form or another last year, according to Sports Business Journal, and they've proven pretty popular. The NFL's Detroit Lions joined in last season after receiving strong response in fan surveys.
For fans who find themselves wanting to munch during the game, it's another choice.
Tigers All-You-Can-Eat seating has two different options. Outdoor seats will run $65 for regular games on the schedule and $75 for premium games. Indoor and standing-room-only seats are $55 and $65, respectively.
