is located in Detroit, Michigan and is the home of the Detroit Tigers. Comerica Park is located next door to Ford Field, the home of the Detroit Lions.
In contrast to Tiger Stadium, which had long been considered one of the most hitter-friendly parks in baseball, Comerica Park is considered to be extremely friendly to pitchers. Except for dead center—420 feet versus Tiger Stadium’s 440 feet—the outfield dimensions were more expansive than those at Tiger Stadium. This led to complaints from players and fans alike, leading to the sarcastic nickname “Comerica National Park.”
Although a few people supported the current dimensions, most agreed that the left-field wall needed to be moved closer to home plate. Before the 2003 season the moved the distance from left-center field from 395 to 370 feet. This also removed the flagpole from the field of play; this was incorporated into Comerica Park as a tribute to Tiger Stadium. A ball that hits the pole is now ruled a home run.
The stadium also includes many baseball themed features, including a “Monument Park” (similar to that of Yankee Stadium) in the center field stands. This museum features statues of former Tigers Ty Cobb, Hal Newhouser, Charlie Gehringer, Hank Greenberg, Al Kaline, and Willie Horton.
The field itself features a distinctive dirt strip between home plate and the pitcher’s mound. This strip, known as the “keyhole”, was common in early ballparks, yet very rare in modern facilities (the only other current major league stadium to feature this being Chase Field in Phoenix.)
