Here is the complete Comerica Park bag policy and more to know about when coming to watch the Tigers play.

Guests coming to the MLB ballpark for a baseball game or another event must go through a metal detector. Fans with a bag will have them searched by the security team to ensure they follow the bag policy guide and don’t have any prohibited items in them. If there are any issues with the bag or the content inside it, the fan will need to surrender that at the stadium, leave them in their car, or find a place to store them.


Comerica Park has one of the more extreme bag policies in Major League Baseball, so most bags are not allowed inside the venue. Your best bet is to buy a small clear bag with a single compartment to bring to Comerica Park for a Tigers game. Buy a clear bag for your next stadium visit!

What Should You Do If Your Bag Is Too Big to Enter Comerica Park?

If your bag does not comply with Comerica Park’s guidelines, you must leave those items in your car before returning to the stadium.


If you took public transportation to the game and didn’t have a car to put your stuff in, your best bet is to go to a nearby hotel and see if they can hold onto it. Most hotels will charge a small fee to hold onto your stuff while you are at a game.


I left my backpack and luggage at a nearby hotel on my way to Comerica Park in 2019 without any problems. I was flying out later that day and got off the bus from Cleveland, so I didn’t have a car to put my stuff in. The cost back in 2019 for a hotel to hold onto my stuff was $10, and they tagged my bag, so I could pick it up on my way back to the hotel before calling an Uber to get to the airport.
