Wristband system to help streamline ticket sales

LAKELAND, Fla. -- With single-game tickets going on sale Saturday morning, the Tigers will be trying to accommodate fans looking to get early spots in line at the Comerica Park box office by handing out wristbands to the first 1,000 fans to show up Friday afternoon.

Fans can pick up a numbered wristband beginning at 3 p.m. ET Friday in the Tiger Club lobby off Witherell Street. Those fans can then return to the park Saturday morning, when the starting number will be determined.

A fan will randomly draw a number around 8:15 a.m. The fan whose wristband matches that number will serve as the starting point for the line. From there, fans will line up by wristband number from that point through 1,000, then from 1 to the number, followed by fans without wristbands. Fans with wristbands must be line by 9:30 a.m., or they will need to go to the end of the line.

Wristbands are one per person and do not guarantee tickets. Fans in line must have a valid form of payment, either cash or a credit card with valid ID.
