Detroit Opera House offers view of games

DETROIT — The newest seats at the Detroit Opera House offer baseball fans a view of on-field action at the home of the Detroit Tigers.

The Coors Light Sky Deck, which has its grand opening Friday, offers a rooftop beer garden, bleachers and a view into Comerica Park from straightaway center field of most of the baseball action, the Detroit Free Press reported.

The rooftop is about 450 feet from the center field wall, and more than 900 feet from home plate. Still, visitors can follow each pitch. The crack of bats and the roar of the crowd inside Comerica Park can be heard, and there’s a view of the city — as well as a full bar.

“It’s a fantastic view,” said Jon Coutts, general manager of the Detroit Courtyard Marriott, who was given a rooftop tour during Thursday’s afternoon game between the Tigers and the White Sox. “You feel like you’re in the mix, but not in the crowd.”
