Thread: Tiger Stadium / Briggs Stadium / Navin Field

    Tiger Stadium / Briggs Stadium / Navin Field

    I'm looking for a photo of Tiger Stadium from the 1980 till the last year the Tigers played there. I would like to find one that has a view from behind the plate where you can see both foul poles or at least close to it. Here's the best one i could find so far which is a hard thing I've found.

    I've got some old Tiger/Briggs Stadium pics I need to upload here soon. In the meantime, here's a '95 ESPN Baseball Tonight highlight clip of a game at Tiger Stadium vs the Red Sox.

    The prowling tiger alternates.

    Funny...I remember them having those. I just don't remember them wearing them.

    They may have worn them once or twice, and they did away with alternates. Thank goodness.

    I wish the Mets would do the same. I HATE all their alternates. I wish they would just stick with the pinstripes and blue hats. Their traditional look is still best.

    Sigh.

    The ballpark of my youth.

    GREAT photos. Wish I'd seen her when she was all green, and wish I could have seen at least one Lions game there in person. Painting her blue was the worst mistake that John Fetzer/Jim Campbell ever made.

    But her time came.

    Tiger/Briggs Stadium's first night game was June 15, 1948. Not 1938.

    I read or heard once that there was a sign outside of the visitor's locker room door at Tiger Stadium which read "No Visitor's Allowed." Am I correct and if so, does anyone have a photo to post here? Perhaps somebody already has in another thread, but I've yet to come across it. Thanks.
