The Growlers vs. the Tigers

This is going to be ugly.

In this game, the lowest score wins.


Let me start by saying we love the Tigers. Heck, we want our players to eventually play for them. But this offseason, I wanted to see how we stacked up against them. So I had our front office do a little research.

Let’s be honest, playing them on the field would be a massacre.  Those guys are the best of the best and our players are just too young to compete. But off the field, that’s another story.

We decided to compare one of the things that fans can relate to most, our small ticket plans. Here’s what we found out…

A Tigers 6-game plan will cost you $110, that’s about $18.33 per ticket for some of the furthest away seats in the ballpark. You get some small perks, but essentially you get the seats. Plus, don’t forget to factor in the cost of gas to drive there and the fan favorite $20 parking fee in a side lot.

A Growlers 5-game pack will cost you $70, that’s $14 per ticket and you get a lot more. Free food, 5 gifts and our best seats at our most popular weekend games. You also have a short commute and free parking.

If you’re like me, you’re trying to find fun things to do at a low cost. Because of that, this summer I suggest you consider a Harding’s 5-game pack.  Not only will you save money, but you’ll save an even more valuable resource, your time. With each pack you get:

  • All-You-Can-Eat. You get all of the hot dogs, burgers, chicken sandwiches, chips, potato salad, cole slaw, soda and water you want for 4 innings. We’re even building you your own pavilion to skip the lines at the concession stand.
  • Free Gifts. Receive a team jersey, hat, bobblehead, USB phone fan and team photo. ($85 value)
  • Our 5 Best Games. Fireworks nights, celebrities, America’s Got Talent entertainment acts. Last year these nights sold out.  The only way to guarantee your seat at these games is with your 5-Game pack.
  • Ticket Exchange Program. You can exchange any unused tickets for tickets to another regular season home game of your choice.
  • Limited Availability. Our stadium only allows us to offer 750 of these packages per game and is not available during the season.
  • No-Hassle Renewal Program. Our ticket packages are automatically renewed which will guarantee your perks. If you wish to cancel at any time, just let us know. August 1st in the renewal date.
  • Highly Affordable. All of this will only cost you $14 per game. If you walked up the day of the game you’d pay$11 per ticket and not get any food or gifts. Options- $85 Box, $70 Bleacher
  • Payment Plan. We even have an easy payment plan that allows you to pay as you go.

With this 5-game plan, you get about one game every two weeks, which is just right for a lot of fans.
