DETROIT – Single-game tickets for the highly anticipated 2024 Detroit Tigers season will go on sale to the best fans in baseball this Wednesday, Feb. 14 at 10 a.m. at

Opening Day – Detroit’s Biggest Party – is scheduled for Friday, April 5 at Comerica Park against the Oakland Athletics with first pitch set for 1:10 p.m. To ensure as many Tigers fans as possible have the opportunity to experience Opening Day, fans can purchase a maximum of eight tickets per person, while supplies last.

“Opening Day in Detroit is less than 60 days away, and we’re very excited about the return of Tigers baseball,” said Ryan Gustafson, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer, Ilitch Sports + Entertainment. “With a great home schedule and a tremendous lineup of special events and giveaways, there will be something for everyone. We look forward to seeing our fans on Opening Day, and unveiling our brand-new videoboard and additional enhanced fan experiences throughout Comerica Park.”

Detroit opens the regular season home slate against Oakland from April 5-7, and the Tigers will host the defending World Series champion Texas Rangers from April 15-18. The St. Louis Cardinals will visit Comerica Park to wrap up April and open May (April 29-May 1), while the Toronto Blue Jays will be in Detroit over Memorial Day weekend (May 23-26). The Tigers will host the Los Angeles Dodgers from July 12-14, and the New York Yankees will visit Comerica Park on Friday, Aug. 16 and Saturday, Aug. 17, before the Tigers and Yankees close out the series at the MLB Little League Classic in Williamsport, Pa., on Sunday, Aug. 18.

The Boston Red Sox will visit Comerica Park for a weekend series from Aug. 30-Sept. 1. The Tigers will close out the regular season with a six-game homestand against the Tampa Bay Rays (Sept. 24-26) and Chicago White Sox (Sept. 27-29).

Jim Leyland’s Induction to National Baseball Hall of Fame to be celebrated on Saturday, Aug. 3

The Tigers will celebrate the decorated career of former manager Jim Leyland on Saturday, Aug. 3 prior to the 6:10 p.m. game against the Kansas City Royals. After receiving the call last December, Leyland will be inducted into the 2024 class of the National Baseball Hall of Fame on July 21 in Cooperstown, N.Y.

Leyland served as the Tigers’ skipper from 2006-13, leading Detroit to one of the greatest turnarounds in baseball history when it reached the World Series in his first season. The Tigers reached the postseason four times under Leyland’s tutelege, including three straight American League Central titles from 2011-13 and another World Series appearance in 2012. Leyland, a three-time Manager of the Year winner during his 22 seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Florida Marlins, Colorado Rockies and Detroit, retired after the 2013 campaign with a career record of 1,769-1,728-2, including 700-597 with the Tigers.

Returning for 2024 – thanks to the commitment of Tigers corporate partners – the first 15,000 fans in attendance for every Saturday home game will receive special giveaway items as part of Giveaways on Saturdays.
