The changes will impact ticket holders for home games planned in April and May. Those fans will have two options: receive a refund for missed games in those months, or apply those funds to future games, upgrades or even a unique behind-the-scene experience. The second option will also include a 30 percent bonus credit.
The behind-the-scenes experiences include, First pitch, Deliver lineup card, Batting cage experience, Fireworks in dugout, Honorary grounds crew, Press Box & Broadcaster Experience and more.
Additionally, valued season ticket holders who decide to leave money on their accounts will be eligible to participate in a new community goodwill program called "Gift the Game."
Through the program, the Detroit Tigers will donate 25 tickets in the season ticket holder's name to honor those impacted by COVID-19. That includes first responders and essential workers. The donation can also go to a Detroit youth nonprofit organization.
