Statues give Detroit Tigers' ballpark prime picture spots

Comerica Park does not have some of the features fans loved about Tiger Stadium, like the overhang in right field and the intimate upper-deck box seats, but the downtown Detroit ballpark that opened in 2000 can count several prime picture-taking spots among its assets.
Before every game at the Detroit Tigers' home, fans pose in front of the seated tiger outside the main entrance, at the statue of broadcaster Ernie Harwell that greets them inside the gates, and at the statues of six Tigers greats that stand on the concourse in left field.
National Baseball Hall of Fame members Al Kaline, Hal Newhouser, Charlie Gehringer, Hank Greenberg and Ty Cobb, along with native Detroiter Willie Horton, were honored with statues in left field, and their likenesses are popular stopping points for fans strolling the stadium.
Many like to photograph friends and family alongside one of the statues -- Kaline is perhaps the most popular -- with the baseball field in the background.
