Tiger Town is the regular season home of the Lakeland Flying Tigers, the Class A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers who have been training in Lakeland since 1934 and have been playing in Joker Marchant Stadium since 1966. In those many years Tiger Town has evolved into a complete training complex that includes the ballpark, other training fields, dorm, training facilities and team clubhouses.
Joker Marchant Stadium is located on a dynamic complex known as, "Tiger Town." Tiger Town has been the home of the Detroit Tigers since 1953. Also on-site is a three-story dormitory, which provides housing for 190 players and coaches. The building was dedicated in 1971, and named in honor of the late John Fetzer, former owner and president of the Detroit Tigers.
Recently, the building has undergone a number of renovations to improve the living quality for players and coaches. An administrative building, cafeteria, and recreation hall are also on the facility. Campers train and live at Tiger Town staying in the Tiger Town Dorms, located on site!

Making new friends
July 5, 2017: My son is very shy when it comes to making new friends. He knew nobody going into the week, but by the end he had gone out of his comfort zone and had made a couple new friends.
— Jeanice M. Parent
Really enjoyed the coaches
"Awesome Camp! Really enjoyed the coaches (Coach Beck, Coach Ricky, Coach Carlos, Coach Dallas and the others). My brother and I will be back next summer."
— Overnight Camper
We Have Three Boys And Will Definitely Be Returning!
"My child was one of the younger kids and we were SO impressed with the way the instructors encouraged them and also encouraged the older kids to show good sportsmanship toward the younger ones. The camp was WONDERFUL. We are locals but I can't imagine sending my son to any other big campus camp that would measure up to this one! We have three young boys and will definitely be returning customers!!!"
Genuine, Knowledgeable Coaches
"My coach surpassed my expectations as a coach and as a person. He is very genuine and knowledgeable about the sport of baseball."
— Overnight Camper
Better Appreciation for the Game
"They helped my son to appreciate the game of baseball on and off the field. I would highly recommend this camp to other ball players. I look forward to my son attending the camp next year with his little brother."
Overall Individual Attention
"I was impressed that the coaches worked with us individually. At other camps it was almost always as a group. They covered everything about baseball and even introduced me to some new strength training exercises. I enjoyed the camp very much."
