Burns Park was a baseball park located in Detroit, Michigan that served two seasons as the exclusive Sunday home of the Detroit Tigers in Major League Baseball. In 1901 and 1902, Burns Park was used to observe blue laws, which prevented Sunday games from being played at Bennett Park, the team's primary baseball park. Burns Park was named after the first Tigers' owner, James D. Burns, who built the ballpark on his own property. [1] On April 28, 1901, the first game was played at the ballpark in which the Tigers defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 12-11. [2]
