Tiger fans are excited for the big game and early this morning Comerica Park was already starting to come to life.
Before noon some single tickets starting at $100 were still available on the Tigers' web site and for $84 on stubhub in anticipation for game three of Detroit's ALCS match up against the New York Yankees. It seems fans of all ages have Tiger fever.
We caught up with Jessica Scott as she was taking pictures in front of the big tigers at the park with her 8 month old little boy. Scott says,"he'll sit through the game, he loves it."
Early Tuesday crews were cleaning up both inside and outside of Comerica Park. Frank Alvarado has been picking up after Tiger fans for over a decade. He said his plan of attack to keeping everything clean is to start with the outside, then work his way up from the first level, to the second etc.
Inside "The D Shop" there's a buzz rippling through the air. They opened early to make sure everyone has their gear for the game. 'The D Shop' manager Lando Jerdine says, "you have your team first of all coming in with a 2-0 lead. But also the merchandise. We're bringing in the dueling products like New York versus Detroit with both active rosters on the back. And also a separate event, Miguel Cabrera winning the triple crown, tons of great product for that as well."
Comerica Park will no doubt be ready for the tens of thousands of fans with tickets. And those fans will no doubt be ready for Justin Verlander to take the mound. Brian Gregurich is looking for the Cy Young winner to pitch another complete game.
Other fans we spoke with say they are confident the Tigers will beat the Yankees and make it to the World Series.
