7 Opening Day street scenes
Detroit — On a day filled with peanuts, street drummers and beer, there are a few things Detroiters could only see on Opening Day while walking to the ballpark from Woodward Avenue.
Cheli's loses wheels
Workers of Cheli's Chili Bar continued serving beer as they watched their precious bus hitched up on a tow truck Friday morning for parking in a no standing zone. A worker was too stressed to comment. The bar soon went from free entry to a $20 cover charge.
At Bell's Beer Oasis, the Michigan brewery presented 20-foot-tall cans of Two Hearted Ales and Oberons with cornhole and $8 regular-sized cans in Grand Circus Park.
Fans in their finery
Die-hard fans of both teams showed up, many per tradition, on Friday in themed Tigers-Pirates guise.
Opening Day runway
Game attendees used Detroit streets as their runway as they repped all of their orange and blue Tigers gear from head to toe.
Kids have more fun
Many kids whose parents pulled them out of school for Opening Day Thursday got to miss two days since it was postponed. Olivia, 11, said she couldn't be happier to spend the days with her family and not in math class.
The Detroit Police Department in collaboration with Help Eliminate Auto Thefts issued warning advisories on many vehicles parked near Comerica Park. Police looked inside vehicle windows and spotted items making the vehicle vulnerable to theft.
While this is a sight also be seen during hockey games, this Labatt Blue Zamboni was seen on the streets outside Little Caesars Arena Friday.
