Michigan Sports & Outdoors

  • Comerica Park

    Home of Major League Baseball's Detroit Tigers, the 40,000-seat Comerica Park opened in 2000 to replace antiquated Tiger Stadium.The new ballpark was planned as part of a revitalization plan for downtown Detroit which included construction of Ford Field, the home of the National Football League's Detroit Lions. The open-air ballpark was designed in...

  • Mountain Biking

    Exploring northern Michigan for MTB trails is something still on my list of things to do. So far I enjoyed some in the southeastern part of the State and these were easy-medium trails through the woods. We're talking summer months as other seasons won't be much indicated for riding. Lower Peninsula's orography only offers very mild climbs or...

  • Cycling - Kensington Metropark & Island...

    Nice ride within parks on paved cycling paths. Kensington Metropark is a popular destination during summer months. Located west of Detroit, it includes Kent Lake which is formed by the Huron River. A 9-mile paved path surrounds the lake with minor ups and downs. Don't expect real steep hills! Speed limit is 10 mph - hardly obeyed by cyclists - and...

  • Comerica Park - Home of the Detroit...

    Another chapter in my visit of all the Major League Baseball Stadiums. I visited Comerica Park in June 2002.Comerica Park is the newst home to the Detroit Tigers. Their original home, Tiger Stadium is still standing and you can visit, which I did, but it's not the same taking a tour or admiring it from the outside. I really wanted to see a game in...

  • Take me out to the ballgame

    We always make sure to get to a Tiger game. I never thought I would like Comerica Park since I grew up going to Tiger Stadium, but it does have its advantages - I never sit behind a pole is a big one! As they no longer suck, tickets are harder to come by - but there are still people selling them near the ballpark. I usually buy online so I don't...

  • Cycling in Michigan

    Michigan has several dedicated biking paths and it can certainly be considered a cyclist's friendly State. Parks and recreation areas also feature specific mountain bike trails, although the warm months are not as many as one would desire and maximizing the short warm season is a must. I have my daily intake of cycling enjoyment around...

  • NBA - Detroit Pistons

    This curious tank painted like a basketball is visible from I-75 near exit 43, but the Pistons playground in Auburn Hills in definitely not as gloomy as the vicinity of the Detroit River.As of May 2007, the Pistons are engaged in the Eastern Conference finals.

  • NHL - Detroit Red Wings

    Beautiful Joe Louis Arena, located downtown on the Detroit River next to Cobo Hall, is the home rink of the Red Wings hockey team."Hockeytown", as locals call it, sits over 20,000 spectators and provides a great ambience.

  • Detroit - Comerica Park

    With a capacity of 41,000 spectators, Comerica Park stadium is home to the baseball team of Detroit Tigers and hosted the 2005 All-Star game.This renewed sport theater is part of the strategy to revitalize Detroit as a desirable city. Go for it!

  • Kayaking - Annual Sierra Club Winter...

    The trip from Island Lake south to Strawberry Lake is a rather slow, but peaceful paddle.From Strawberry Lake south to the Portage Lake Dam you'll be traversing a number of lakes with fairly slow moving river in-between. From the Dam south to Dexter is a combination of shallow river, some light rapids, a few slow moving sections. Dexter to Barton...

  • Photo op!

    Take time out for a photo op in front of Comerica Park. With lots of photo's to take, here I am posing in front of a giant concrete tiger.

  • All within walking distants!

    Detroit Michigan home of the professional baseball team The Detroit Tigers, Lions (american football), Red Wings (Ice Hockey), and their major sport's teams facilties are all within walking distant's in downtown Detroit!
