    Please let's keep this discussion about baseball and Tiger Stadium. Like Donald, I am saddened and disgusted with a lot of the things that have happened in the city I am still proud to call my home town, but this is not the place to discuss them. It seems everyone has their opinion about Detroit, good and bad, and I'd hate to see this turn into a heated debate that won't solve a dang thing because it's on a baseball board.

    No, but I'll gladly push the red button with as much trepidation as nostalgia calls for.

    Look, Tiger Stadium isn't exactly an architectural and aesthetic marvel; i.e., it's not that nice to merely look at, unlike the Michigan Central station. It's a utilitarian edifice that no longer serves the purpose for which it was built. It's costly to maintain and it'll have absolutely no sentimental value once our generation passes.

    Southwest Detroit; hell, all Detroit neighborhoods need jobs and retail. They don't need a constant reminder of past sports glories when the city was twice as large as it is today. Take pictures of it from every conceivable angle to save for posterity, just do something useful with the property before the entire city becomes a cemetery of "fabulous ruins".

    Tiger Stadium

    I have not heard anything more on tiger stadium as of late. they still have security guards down there watching the stadium 24-7.i hope that the city of detroit has learned something during the superbowl week on tiger stadium and get smart and use it for something like high school baseball or football or let them put the minor league baseball team in there that they wanted to do 5 years ago.

    Tiger Stadium

    Tigers Stadium is still there and because of buracracy and lack of money in the City of Detroit, they have no plans for it. There have been proposals for it, all of which have been refused. The latest news is that there is no new.

    If we haven't chased him away already, maybe Donald could pop in here and give us an update on Tiger Stadium. He is, after all, part of the Tiger Stadium fan club and I'm sure he keeps tabs on any and all news regarding the aging beauty. As much as he despises CoPa, he does know alot about Tiger Stadium. Come back, Donald!!

    Is the grand old park still there?

    I heard they moved the Cobb plaque to the corporate abomination.
    What is the stadium's destiny?

    If she is ever demolished, please let me know. I want to get a brick or something!!
    Tiger Stadium is still very much there. It was used for several exclusive events during Super Bowl week, all of them under some sort of tent.
    If it does get torn down, the demand for souvenirs will be through the roof. I know Olympia stuff became super rare not too long after they tore that place down, and Olympia was not Tiger Stadium.
