    The banner in the photo and one more are on each of the two front gates at Brooks Lumber Co. on Trumbull.

    Donald will have the third banner and erect it on the pedestrian bridge when he is present.

    REMINDER--OTSC Fundraiser

    Tiger Stadium Fundraiser Tonight

    Come watch the Tigers take on the Cleveland Indians tonight, Wednesday, August 27, at Gusoline Alley in downtown Royal Oak and help preserve a portion of historic Tiger Stadium.

    The fun gets started at 6 p.m.

    Great live music will be provided at the fundraiser by Niko Frangos (from Gino Fanelli's Red Hot Sugar Daddies) and other special guests.

    Gusoline Alley is located at 309 S. Center St. in downtown Royal Oak, between Third and Fourth.

    A $10 donation per patron is recommended.
    All proceeds benefit the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy (OTSC).

    From 1912 to 1999, the corner of Michigan and Trumbull was the home of the Detroit Tigers. Today, the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy is hard at work trying to preserve part of the old ballpark and to do something that's never before been done in the United States with a major-league field.

    But if a portion of the stadium is to remain, we need your help. The City of Detroit has given the OTSC until November 1 to show it has a comprehensive financial plan for its goal to preserve part of the park and to operate a Michigan sports museum on-site.

    The OTSC is hard at work raising funds, and needs to raise an additional $119,000 before September 8 to retain the option of preserving the field and the most historic portions of Tiger Stadium. Additional monies will need to be raised during the fall for pre-development expenses.

    If you can't make it to the fundraiser, you can make a tax-deductible donation at:

    www.savetigerstadium.org.

    Tax deductible? how did they figure that? Helping sick kids, funding medical research, that's the only stuff that should be tax deductible.

    The IRS maps it all out quite nicely.

    There's more than one personal cause out there. No one's going to say those things are not important. But there's far, far more needing charitable assistance beyond medical assistance. To throw all else to the wayside, is well, we don't need to go there here.

    Saving Tiger Stadium has definite cultural advantages to the city of Detroit.

    Yes, you should be able to deduct donations.

    ...as if the medical companies, insurances companies, and pharmaceuticals don't already make a killing off most people... milking them dry and keeping them sick so they can milk them dry some more...

    OK, I'll jump down from that soap box.

    I went by TS last night on my way to the Tigers game. It sure looks weird with most of it gone. It's cool to be able to see the field from the streets, but at the same time it's weird with most of it gone and still is sad.

    Sorry if this has been covered already, but are they selling things to help raise the money? Selling might not be the right word. Can we send a 'donation' for a piece of the old ball yard?

    No, at least not at this point as the City of Detroit, not the Conservancy, has possession of the title to the property that is Tiger Stadium.

    I just sent this letter to every council member. I thought you would be interested, so I'm sharing it with you guys.

    Your Honors,

    I'm not sure if you recognize the awesome opportunity that is presenting itself to the City of Detroit with the Tiger Stadium property and a partially conserved Tiger Stadium.

    There is a wide range of development and economic potential for that property WITH the field intact and conservation of the Navin portion of the stadium.

    I understand that you currently are working with the Tiger Stadium conservancy on their plans. Beyond what they have offered for potential use of the Stadium lot, there is so much more that the city itself could benefit from developing the property.

    Look at all that space in the outfield where the stands used to be. That land overlooking the wonderful view of the field could be a gold mine for the city. Lofts with a rear view of the field would sell at a premium. High end and mid-range trendy restaurants with out door patios and decks overlooking the field would be an attraction bringing in visitors from all over the Metro Detroit area and mid-west. There is room for retail. Specialty grocery stores. The possibilities are endless.

    Additionally, council members have mentioned the racist history of the Detroit Tigers as well as major league baseball. You have an opportunity at your hands that will disappear once the entire stadium is demolished. A National African American Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. It will not right the wrongs of the past, but it will honor those who fought through the racism and continued to play despite the adversity. It would also serve to educate.

    The downtown area is riddled with vacant lots, abandoned buildings and lost hope. Tearing down the entire stadium will not only diminish the value of the property but will diminish the opportunities for cultural advancement and economic possibilities.

    If the conservancy's outline for conservation doesn't meet your requirements for economic sustainability, I urge you to consider other options and other developers. This is a historical landmark that could reap cultural and economic rewards for the city. Once it is gone, the opportunities are lost.

    Sincerely,
    Eric Toth

    Great letter! Keep us posted as to whether they answer you or not (yeah, I know the answer to that one).

    I find it very interesting that the council states that the Tigers and MLB have been racist (I agree with that point), yet they're the ones who've let Ilitch call the shots on Tiger Stadium!!!

    I'm not counting on hearing anything. I just wanted to plant a seed. A National African American BB HOF would be great for the city. Therefore, it will never happen.

    Harwell and Carey are much better to listen to in their original smoke-signal format.
