TigerFest Jan. 24 2016

Recommended Posts

I didn't see anything posted about this, probably because everyone has their own gripe about the event. As you can see, nothing has changed from what info is up thus far... and it sold out in 20 minutes!

TigerFest | Detroit Tigers

I do have a pair of tickets up for sale if there is a buyer out there, but either you bought yours or you are fed up and will be staying home this year.

Bruce Rondon (via Detroit newspapers)

Hmmmmm...... What if he doesn't keep his autograph line moving quickly enough?

I won tickets on WOMC in December, so as huge of a Tigers fan as I am and as many games as I go to every year...this will be my first Tigerfest!

For those who have been, what is realistically a good time to get down there? Since its general admission, does getting in line early have any benefit?

The line can get really long, could take you a good 45 mins if you do not get in the line early to even get in the doors after they open. The lines inside will be worse the later you get in. Good chance that if you get in 45 to a hour after doors most of the line will already have too many people in them for them to allow anyone else to line up. TigerFest has gotten worse every year in terms of lines, now instead of having 6-7 spots all spread out they have 3 sections that share 1 main line and split at the door. Last year it took us almost 2 hrs sometimes to get back into the room after getting an autograph. Previous years they would be 2-3 people signing at a time, last year almost all lines had 1 person and a few has 2. I used to get close to 20 autographs with early entry passes, last year I got 8.

Last time I got an autograph at tigerfest was at Cobo. Justin Thompson signed the sweet spot. Higginson and Easley signed too.

Where the #%$!* is Kaline?

McCann is taking his place. If you want his autograph, you better do it the right way.

Kinsler is always on the winter caravan but never at tigerfest. It's crazy how he can be in the city the day before but not make it.

sometimes the new guy get out of it due to having plans already.. Kinsler i guess just doesn't care to meet the people who pay his salary.

This sounds horrible. No way I'd ever do that.

Also, why is Pat Caputo there? People really want his signature?
