2017 Schedule



The game between the Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians that was postponed due to inclement weather on May 4 will be made up as part of a split doubleheader on July 1. The first game of the split doubleheader will start at 1:10 p.m., while first pitch for the second game is set for 7:15. The first game will be televised by FOX Sports Detroit and the second game will be televised by FOX.

All paid tickets for the May 4 game will be honored for the first game of the split doubleheader on July 1. No ticket exchange is necessary.


The September 29 Tigers-Indians game was postponed due to rain.

Since the game was not rescheduled or made up, fans can exchange their unused tickets at any time for a future non-premium regular season game scheduled to be played within 12 months from September 29, excluding Opening Day.


According to the rules of Major League Baseball, the home team is the sole judge as to conditions of the playing field, prior to the start of the game. The umpire-in-chief shall be the sole judge as to whether and when play shall be suspended during a game because of unsuitable weather conditions or the unfit condition of the playing field; as to whether and when the play shall be resumed after such suspension; and as to whether and when a game shall be terminated after such suspension. He shall not call the game until at least 30 minutes after he has suspended play. He may continue the suspension as long as he believes there is a chance to resume play. The umpire-in-chief shall at all times try to complete a game.

His authority to resume play following one or more suspensions of as much as 30 minutes each shall be absolute and he shall terminate a game only when there appears to be no reasonable possibility of completing the ballgame.

If a game is postponed or not played because of inclement weather or other reason, please see the Rain Check/Game Cancellation policy below.


Rain Check Tickets: In the event that 5 innings of one game are not played, except if the Tigers are in the lead at the end of 4½ innings, one of the following policies will apply:

  1. When the canceled game is rescheduled on an open date or as part of a split day/night double header with a specific start time for the rescheduled game, the original ticket will be valid for entry to the rescheduled game ONLY. (Exception: When the canceled game is rescheduled during the same homestand on an open date or as part of a split day/night doubleheader, the original ticket may be used for admission to the rescheduled game or may be exchanged for any future similar or lesser priced regular season game in the next 12 months from the original game date, excluding opening day.)
  2. When the canceled game is rescheduled onto an existing game, thereby creating a traditional doubleheader where only one of the two games has a specific start time, the ticket for the originally scheduled game is valid for both games. The canceled game ticket is then invalid and subject to applicable exchange policy.
  3. If the canceled game is not rescheduled, this ticket may be exchanged for any future regular season game during the next 12 months at the value stated. Ticket exchanges are subject to availability and all service charges or differences in value are non-refundable. Tickets may be redeemed at the Tigers Box Office or by mailing them to: Tigers Box Office, 2100 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI 48201.

Complimentary tickets may not be exchanged under any circumstances and are invalid for use at the rescheduled game. For more information, please call (313) 471-BALL (2255). Specific information regarding each canceled game is available by calling (313) 471-BALL (2255) or by visiting tigers.com.

In the event a game is postponed or canceled, refunds for parking are not available on any Olympia Development Lot. Guests with season parking passes can retain their pass and present them on the date of the make-up game.
