  • Bark at the Park Night returns for two games in the upcoming 2018 season.

Bark at the Park Night will return this baseball season, bringing dogs back into the stands at Comerica Park.

Now in its third year, the Tigers' dog day celebration has expanded to two games in the 2018 season, including one during the "dog days" of mid-September. The first will take place Monday, May 14 against the Cleveland Indians, the second happens Monday, Sept. 17 against the Minnesota Twins.

For $48, adult fans can bring one dog to each game. In addition to watching the game in the stands with their canine counterpart, there will be adorable photo ops and a Bark at the Park party area with water stations and doggy potties.

In order to gain entry to these games, fans must bring a copy of their pooch's up-to-date vaccinations at check-in. All dogs must wear an identification tag and be accompanied by someone who is at least 18 years old.

A limited supply of tickets for both Bark at the Park Nights will go on-sale starting Thursday, March 22 at 10 a.m. These special event tickets are only available online and must be purchased before the games so make sure to grab yours before heading to the ballpark.
