Diehard Detroit Tigers fans will be flocking to Comerica Park this afternoon, less than 24 hours before single game tickets go on sale.

Individual game tickets for the 2014 Tigers season go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. — but in order to provide a greater opportunity to purchase Opening Day and choice game tickets, the Tigers will distribute numbered wristbands to the first 1,000 fans beginning at 3 p.m. today.

Fans can pick up a wristband at the Tiger Club lobby, located on Witherell Street. Fans are not permitted to wait at the box office overnight. On Saturday, between 8:15 and 8:30 a.m., a fan will randomly draw a number that will start the line. All other numbers will be placed in numerical order through 1,000, and then one through the last number drawn, followed by fans without wristbands.

Wristbands are one per person and do not guarantee tickets. Fans with wristbands must be in numerical order by 9:30 a.m. on Saturday. Those arriving after 9:30 a.m. even with a wristband will need to go to the end of the line.

Fans can purchase single game tickets at the Comerica Park Box Office, online at www.tigers.com, or by calling 1-866-66-TIGER.
