The 4:10 p.m. ET start will take place right about the time the Lions' 1 p.m. game against the Colts is expected to be wrapping up. The Tigers are suggesting fans arrive by 3 p.m. as a precaution. The gates at Comerica Park will open at 2:30.
Saturday is one of two dates this month where the Tigers and Lions are at home on the same day. A similar scenario two weeks ago, when the Tigers hosted the Royals at night and the Lions had their preseason opener, came off relatively trouble-free.
The first 7,500 fans at Saturday's Tigers game will receive a Curtis Granderson replica glove.
