Detroit Tigers’ Top 5 Fan-Picked Promotional Games
Fact Checked by Pat McLoone

Last week marked Opening Day all over Major League Baseball. Fans from sea to shining sea are eager to return to the 30 cathedrals of professional baseball that dot the nation’s landscape.

Manager A.J. Hinch is looking to get the Detroit Tigers back to the postseason for the first time since 2013, a year after the club went 78-84 and finished 2nd in the AL Central for the first time in seven years.

That progress encouraged fans and certainly caught the attention of Michigan sportsbooks.

Using the Detroit Tigers’ 2024 Promotions & Events Schedule, – your source for online Michigan casinos - surveyed Tigers fans on Reddit to see which themed nights they liked most. We ranked the top five promotions according to votes. 

Based on this system, Bark in the Park is the favorite Tigers’ theme night this season.

Survey was submitted in r/motorcitykitties. Survey was between March 18-21,2024.

Much-Anticipated Tigers Promotions

Enthusiasm on Michigan sports betting apps alone won’t put fans in the seats in Detroit this season. The Tigers promotions department put together a varied slate of themed nights.

The top Tigers promotion that fans are searching for the most involves man’s best friend, with the team’s four “Bark in the Park” games drawing the highest result among fans, at 50%.

In second place was Star Wars Day, which will be held on June 22 when Detroit plays the Chicago White Sox, with fans receiving a Star Wars-themed shirt as part of the promotion.  

That film-related promo got 20% of votes from Reddit respondents, while the team’s Saturday Giveaways (15%), Negro Leagues Weekend and Little League Day (7.5% each) rounded out the top five among Detroit fans.

The Saturday giveaways this year include a retro Detroit Stars cap, which is during Negro Leagues Weekend July 12-14, when Detroit hosts the Los Angeles Dodgers for three games at Comerica Park.  The Dodgers are the World Series favorite at +350 at BetMGM Michigan.

Little League Day takes place this year on Aug. 17 when Detroit hosts the New York Yankees, with the first 15,000 fans in attendance receiving a Riley Green Little League Classic bobblehead and Little League-branded socks from the club.

With the Tigers holding +3000 AL championship odds (and +6000 World Series futures) on ESPN BET Michigan, it seems like Detroit fans can at least enjoy the ride from Opening Day to Game 162 this summer. There will be a host of promotions to draw fans into Comerica Park, regardless of how the team performs on the diamonds of the MLB this season.

And so far, so good on the Tigers. Detroit is 3-0 after sweeping its opening series in Chicago against the White Sox.
