Roofing Near Me Comerica Park
After working a hard day of roofing Comerica Park, in Detroit, we like to watch the Detroit Tigers play baseball when the season is in full swing. Of course, roofing Comerica Park is our top concern. Since 2000, Comerica Park has been home to the Detroit Tigers. It cost $300 million to build the stadium, which can hold 41,471 people for a game. That’s just one reason why Detroit Roofers is proud of its reputation for being the best at roofing Comerica Park. Since it opened, Comerica Park has been the site of many major sporting events, such as the 2006 World Series of Poker, three All-Star games (in 2003, 2008, and 2012), four NCAA Regional Baseball Tournaments (in 2002, 2005, 2007, and 2010), two Major League Baseball All-Star Games (in 2006 and 2012), and other national events like concerts and political rallies. Since 2005, when Ilitch Holdings, Incorporated bought it from Wayne County Parks and Recreation Department, the stadium has been privately owned.
Comerica bought the rights to call the park by its name. The bank was started in Detroit, and its main office was there when the park opened. Even though the bank moved to Dallas, it is still very big in the Detroit area. Comerica Bank agreed in December 1998 to pay $66 million over 30 years for the right to name the new baseball stadium. In 2018, Comerica extended its deal with the Tigers for naming rights until 2034. Comerica Park is where the Detroit College of Law used to be. On October 29, 1997, the first sod was turned for the new stadium. The scoreboard in left field was the biggest in all of Major League Baseball when it was built. It was part of a plan to improve Detroit’s downtown, which also called for building Ford Field next to the ballpark.
The main entrance to the ballpark is right across the street from the Fox Theatre and between two historic downtown churches, St. John Episcopal Church and Central United Methodist Church. A 15-foot-tall statue of a tiger stands outside the main entrance. There are 8 more life-size statues of tigers all over the park. Two of them are on top of the scoreboard in left field. When the Tigers hit a home run or win, these tigers’ eyes light up and the sound of a tiger growling plays. Outside of roofing Comerica Park, there are 33 tiger heads with lit baseballs in their mouths, lined up along the brick walls.
We also go to the Detroit Institute of Arts when we are in Detroit.
