  • 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.

        It is 9:46 p.m.

        Vin Scully with the call: Two and 2 to Harvey Kuenn, one strike away. Sandy into his windup, here's the pitch.....

        Swung on and missed, a perfect game!!

              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.

                          Greenberg crossing home...in a ROAD jersey??

                          That ain't Tiger Stadium...



                          1951 with NO light towers??

                          The lights were added in 1938.....
