YOUR NAME HERE: In Detroit, Bill Shea cites data from sponsorship measurement firm Front Row Analytics showing that Dallas-based Comerica Bank "potentially will reap $22.1 million worth of local and national broadcast media marketing exposure value from Detroit Tigers playoff games at Comerica Park." Front Row Senior VP Eric Smallwood said that the value is "calculated by examining all of the bank's signage at the ballpark, which includes the foul poles, scoreboard, upper fascia and elsewhere, along with verbal mentions by TBS, Fox and MLB Network broadcasters and images on broadcasts." Shea notes the $22.1M is "if the Tigers play the maximum number of home games through the World Series" (CRAINSDETROIT.com, 10/16).
