The grandstand at Joker Marchant Stadium.


A large bleacher section towers down the third base line. The seating actually wraps around the light tower.


The Spanish Mission style architecture of the park continues with archways throughout the concourse.


Small tiger stripe touches are located throughout "Tiger Town." The park has been home to the Tigers since 1966, the longest current relationship between any Spring Training park and a single team.


The Tigers clubhouse hangs out over the grandstand in the right field corner.


The outfield berm in left features palm trees and covered bench areas to provide shade from the Florida sun.


In a unique touch, the protective netting cuts off at the dugout, but then continues on again down the first base line.


Picnic table seating sits next to the batting cages in the right field corner.


The outfield fence rises in height in in right center field as a chain link fence provides the bullpen with a way to watch the game from behind the wall.
