- The Detroit Tigers, charter members of Major League Baseball's American League, abandoned historic Tiger Stadium at the close of the 1999 season. Their new home is now in the downtown Theater District. Named after a bank whose funds made its creation possible, Comerica Park has something of a circus like atmosphere with enormous sculptures of tigers, bats and balls, as well as a carousel and ferris wheel. Fancy food and pricey amenities abound and baseball seems to take second place to entertainment. Sight lines are clear but upper-deck seats are distant.
