Giant Fiberglass Tiger Statues Get a Makeover

ShowMotion Inc. a theatrical production company in Connecticut made these huge fiberglass statues, and for over a decade, these tigers have sat atop Comerica Park; home of the Detroit Tigers.

Perched 150 feet above the field for years, these tiger statues have taken a beating from the weather. Now, these 10,000 lb. statues have made it home to Connecticut and the company that built them; to be sand-blasted, re-fiberglassed and repainted. The tigers will be back on top of the stadium by the time baseball begins.


‘Their eyes have lasers in them,’ said Mensching, ‘each one of their eyes lights up when someone hits a home run and the Tigers have Prince Fielder now who’s a home-run hitter, so hopefully they get used.’
