Major League Baseball with a Local Flavor

We don’t hide the fact we’re focused on Lakelanders. It’s our name, after all.

That’s why, when it comes to football, our photographer, Tom Hagerty, can be found at high school games…not the Bucs. It’s also why last year we published photos after every Lakeland Flying Tigers home game and the box score from every game home or away. For our readers on Twitter, we sent game updates and reminders. That’s coverage you didn’t find anywhere else.

Baring 70 home game rain-outs, we’ll be back at it again this year. The Flying Tigers home season starts April 9th against the Tampa Yankees. We’re sure we won’t be the only Lakeland Locals there.

Why are we excited about Flying Tigers baseball in February? Individual game tickets go on sale this morning at 10 am.

Individual ticket prices for adults are $6 for a box seat or $5 for a reserved seat. Seniors (55 & over) and children (14 & under) may purchase a box seat for $5 or a reserved seat for $4. Saturday tickets are an additional $1. Parking is free. The box office is located at 2301 Lakeland Hills Boulevard. Box office hours are Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. — Lakeland Flying Tigers

Of course, for the truly budget minded, you can get a season ticket to the Flying Tigers for about what it would cost to take your family to a single spring training game.

Flying Tigers Season tickets are still available for only $210 (just $3 per game), and are available by calling the Flying Tigers at (863) 686-8075. Enjoy great season ticket benefits including, 20% off merchandise at the Joker Marchant Stadium merchandise store during the Flying Tigers season. Season ticket holders may also attend special events at no cost, including a Spring Training Game, meet the team picnic, and end of season BBQ. The Flying Tigers are a Class A Affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. For more information please visit the Flying Tigers online.

  1. Chuck and Tom are great supporters of our Lakeland Flying Tigers. I have season tickets and don’t believe I’ve missed a played game in 5+ years. I love these kids and enjoy meeting the fans like Chuck and Tom.
