EARNING THEIR STRIPES: TIGERS SUITES FILLING UP FAST
Published May 27, 1998
The Tigers are collecting $25,000 down payments for luxury boxes at their new stadium, even though Opening Day is almost two years away, according to Mark Puls of the DETROIT NEWS. The team has already leased 32 suites and expects to have 50 leased in the next few weeks. The stadium will have 106 boxes, including 94 leased ones. The other 12 will be held by the city and the Tigers. Tigers VP/Business Operations David Glazier: "We are ahead of where Seattle was at this point and where Milwaukee was in leasing their suites." Boxes range from $75,000 to $125,000 (DETROIT NEWS, 5/27). The Tigers plan to keep 10 suites for day-of-game rentals (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 5/27).
