The latest epidemic order by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services allows for select sports stadiums, with enhanced safety protocols in place, to operate at up to 20% capacity, or approximately 8,200 ticketed guests at Comerica Park.

The Tigers have coordinated with public health and medical experts, government officials and Major League Baseball to develop a comprehensive plan that will allow fans to safely and confidently return.

Tickets will be limited, so fans are being urged to act early to reserve their seats.
