Comerica Park is known for its statues of ferocious felines standing atop the outside walls of the exterior of the ball park.
But for Opening Day, Tigers fans noticed a new, more comical set of figurines were outside the west entrance on Witherell Street: six life-size bobbleheads of Detroit sports stars.
The roughly 5-foot-tall bobbleheads are in the likeness of Tigers Max Scherzer and Torii Hunter; Red Wings Pavel Datsyuk and Jimmy Howard; and Pistons Josh Smith and Andre Drummond.
Fans Mike Underwood and Bill Meinert, who arrived at 6:30 a.m., took pictures in front of them.
“I like the bobbleheads,” Underwood said. “They are really life-like.”
How much attention to detail, you ask? Down to the different color eyes of Scherzer.
But Meinert said Torii Hunter was his favorite.
“It’s the look on his face,” he said about the grinning Hunter.
