Photo Day Sunday question with the Tigers

Recommended Posts

I have tickets 2nd row by the ball boy (great seats), but I'm wondering what photo day with the players is like. I think I've read where the gates open at 11. How many players are on the field? Which players have done this before? How many pictures can you usually get with different players? What are the waiting lines like? Where do they have the players at on the field? Any information would be great

Photo Day is done on the field. A rope is run from the left field fould line to the right field foul line and the fans are on the outfield side of it. The players walk along the infield side of the rope stopping to take pictures. We've gone to photo day the last couple years, but didn't even attempt to take part, I don't think it's worth the hassle. Two years ago the line to get in the gates stretched all the way out to Woodward a half-hour before they opened. If you manage to get along the rope you have a good spot, but anything other than that and you're looking around heads to get a glimpse.

All the players and coaches take part, but they don't stop at every fan along the rope. It's a crap shoot who you might get to stop at you if you're up front.

One nice thing about photo day is that you can wander the outfield if you want.

Thanks for the information. My tickets for Sunday are the 2nd row right next to the ball boy down the left field line. Any other suggestions would be great

Unfortunately, seat location doesn't have any bearing on photo day. Once you get through the gates you run like hell to the field to get a spot along the rope. :) It's all done on the outfield grass and you stand.

In May they had a portion of the outfield with a double rope. Fans under 14 could stand right by the players. Parents could stand behind the second rope to take photos. The system worked well for the first hour or so until some adults decided to ignore the crowd managers and get in the way of the kids.

This area was in the center. Adults had areas by the foul poles.

My children got photos with Zumaya, Knapp, Leyland, Anderson, Ordonez, Cabrera, Guillen, Willis, Miner, Polanco, Thames, Jackson, Everett, Santiago, Laird, Sardinha, Rodney and Thomas. It is hit, or miss.

They still talk about Cabrera's clowning. He had a fan take a picture of him holding a kid with his phone. He also started walking towards the dug out with somebody's two year old.

My thought is it is definitely worth doing once, but it does become a bit of a madhouse. We sold our tickets for this Sunday.

We arrived at 10:45 btw and got a decent spot.

If you don't want pictures watch all the people as they go on the field. Probably a quarter of them reach down to touch the grass as they reach it.

My wife and I have gone on the field the last couple years to take pictures of the stadium from the field and to just sit in the grass and relax for a little while. That's a fun experience in itself.

Heck, I'm 34 years old and I'd love to get a few pictures with the players. Are there many adults that get them or is just kids? How long do the players stay out there? Do yo need someone with you taking the pictures? What are the chances of getting a few pictures if I get near line? Thanks for the information

I went the last two years. Last year it was pretty weak. I've come to the realization that I'm not really photogenic so I prolly won't go again this year.
