Lakeland Flying Tigers

Lakeland Flying Tigers

The Detroit Tigers' Class A Affiliate team, the Lakeland Flying Tigers, play their Florida State League home games on Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium, which has been their home since 1967.

Minor League Baseball Games

Being a local team, the Lakeland Flying Tigers play through August. This means that even if you missed spring training fever, you can still catch a game during the summer on your Central Florida vacation. And you won’t regret it. Lakeland Flying Tigers games are extremely entertaining and fits anyone’s budget. Not only do you get to watch great baseball, you get to participate in fun events and promotions.

Game Promotions

Themes include Dogs Days of Summer, where man is invited to bring his four-legged best friend out for a night of man’s favorite sport; Bromance Night, where Bros get group discounts, can lounge in a man cave and win manly prizes like fishing gear; and the Annual Wing Ding fundraiser, where every wing you eat helps a cause. The list could go on, but we think you get the point.

On a budget? One of the most popular promotions is “Dollar Days” where tickets are just $1.00 and hot dogs and sodas are just $1.00 as well.

Worried about the summer heat? Don’t. Most games are held in the evening, providing a “cool” way to tend the day.
