TIGERS: Tigers VP/Marketing & Ticket Sales Bob Raymond on Tuesday said that the team has "cleared the 26,000 mark in season-ticket sales for this season," through a combination of full and partial season-ticket plans. In Detroit, John Lowe reported the Tigers sold 9,300 full-season tickets in '07, and all but 5% were renewed for '08, while about 5,000 new season-ticket packages have been sold. As a result, the Tigers have "sold 13,854 full-season ticket packages," which totals more than 15,000 after including luxury suites. Additionally, the Tigers plan to add 500-700 seats to Comerica Park, on risers in left field under the scoreboard and on the Pepsi Porch in right field. The team "hopes the new seats will be in place by Opening Day" (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 2/27).
