Expanded Interleague Play

As a result of the universal DH becoming commonplace in 2022, Major League Baseball announced early last year that the 2023 season would feature each team playing each other at least once for the first time ever. The 2023 schedule reflects that announcement, as the Detroit Tigers will play less inter-divisional games and will play more interleague games. Some highlights include:

  • At Milwaukee Brewers, April 24th-26th
  • Vs. New York (NL), May 2nd-4th
  • At St. Louis, May 5th-7th
  • At Philadelphia, June 5th-7th
  • Vs. Atlanta, June 12th-14th
  • Vs. San Diego, July 21st-23rd
  • Vs. Chicago (NL), August 21st-23rd
  • At Los Angeles (NL), September 18th-20th

All Weeknight Home Games Will Now Start at 6:40

Yep, you read that right. On Thursday, the Tigers announced that all weeknight home games will now start at 6:40 PM instead of 7:10 PM. This idea had been done in the past during the months of April and September, but starting this season, the 6:40 time will become the standard for weeknight games. This does not affect all road games during the week, however.

Every Friday Will Be a “Party In The Park”

Are you a fan of the Tigers’ fireworks shows on certain Fridays? Wish that they could have more shows? Well, this news is for you, as the Tigers have introduced “Party in the Park” Fridays, which according to the team, will feature “fireworks, live music, and entertainment.” This is a brand new promotion for the 2023 season, replacing Firework Friday nights.

Every Saturday Home Game Will Feature a Giveaway

Freebie lovers, rejoice! That’s right, every single Saturday home game will feature a giveaway of some sort this season, as well as some certain other dates (4th of July, Pink out the Park). In addition, the number of giveaway items has increased by 5,000 to 15,000, so more fans will be able to get giveaway items!
