Suspicious package causes brief stir at Comerica, but is found to be harmless

DETROIT — Major League Baseball players get a ton of mail from fans all over.

Most of it is entirely normal and goes without notice.

Occasionally, something raises a red flag, as did a package sent to one of the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday, necessitating the need for it to be checked out.

Despite the concern for fans caused by all the flashing lights from police, fire trucks and ambulances outside the ballpark hours before Wednesday evening’s game, it turned out to be nothing of concern.

Tigers vice president of communications Ron Colangelo issued the following statement:

“A package was delivered to Comerica Park and based on security protocol, local authorities were contacted. A thorough preliminary investigation proceeded by both local authorities and Comerica Park security, and the package was deemed a valid delivery.”

The Tigers are scheduled to play the Royals at 7:05 Wednesday evening, then close out their home season with a 1:05 p.m. game on Thursday.
