Lakeland Flying Tigers Baseball (April - September)

Give your Child a Birthday to Remember at a Lakeland Flying Tigers Game!

A birthday at a Flying Tigers game is much more than just a day at the ballpark. Your child and his/her friends will get the royal treatment and experience exclusive birthday amenities only available with a party package.

Highlights include a group photo on the field, your son or daughter throwing out a ceremonial first pitch, a welcome on the loudspeaker and name up on the videoboard, a visit from Southpaw – the Flying Tigers Mascot, autographs and photos with a Flying Tigers player, and a personal party host to take care of all the party details.

Your party guests will enjoy the baseball game, chow down on traditional baseball fare of peanuts, popcorn and hot dogs (or pizza), and get to play in the Kids Zone inflatables. Your son or daughter AND their friends will have a memorable party they’ll be talking about for weeks!

The Lakeland Flying Tigers are the Single-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. They play at Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium from April through September. Games are family-friendly with frequent promotions on tickets, food, drinks, and activities at the ball park.
