TIGERS-METS SUNDAY SERIES FINALE GONE TO THE BIRDS: Not only do our feathered friends enjoy international soccer, they also love a good inter-league matchup:
Sunday’s Tigers-Mets game had some spectators who just flew in: a flock of seagulls. There were about 50 birds inside Comerica Park - mostly in the outfield - during the first inning, and about half of those stuck around for the rest of the game.
Sean Casey wasn’t too perturbed by the visitors. “There must have been good bugs around me, because I had the same two gulls at first base the whole game.”
The birds weren’t much of a nuisance, except for shouting “Mine!” at every fly ball.
