The team and concessionaire Delaware North Sportservice unveiled a long list of new food items for fans at Comerica Park this season. The list has quite the commitment to Michigan flavors, including four sweet and savory iterations of the local pasties, as well as a line of sandwiches and more. Someone put some real thought into this menu: it takes a special imagination to envision a pasty stuffed with cheddar and potato pierogis.
- Brisket and Mac ‘N Cheese Pasty: Rich, flaky crust stuffed hatch and chili queso Mac ‘N Cheese with smoked beef brisket
- Coney Pasty: Rich, flaky crust stuffed with ballpark frank slices, coney sauce, mustard and diced onions

- Apple Pasty: Tender apples and cinnamon baked in rich, flaky crust
- Motor City Chicken: Tender pork loin wrapped in bacon, drizzled with spicy Michigan Maple Syrup
- Fresh Italian Sausage: Grilled rope Italian Sausage topped with marinara, peppers and onions
- Milk ‘N Cookies: Big chocolate chip cookie and half pint of Guernsey milk

“We are thrilled to welcome Tigers fans back to Comerica Park, both on Opening Day and throughout the upcoming season,” said Ellen Hill-Zeringue, Vice President of Marketing via press statement. “We have some amazing experiences planned for our fans, including Pink Out the Park, the jersey retirement of Tigers legend Lou Whitaker, our second annual Summer Bash, Negro Leagues Weekend, ¡Fiesta Tigres! and much more.
Traditionally, Comerica Park really hasn’t been seen as a foodie paradise. The Detroit Tigers are directly challenging that assumption in 2022.
Speaking of Chevrolet: The left-field Chevrolet Pavilion has been upgraded with a new bar facing the playing field, with a rebranded canopy and signage that is visible both from the concourse and the field side. Detroit-based Atwater Brewery branding is now also featured.
