Judge okays Tiger Stadium demolition

Friday’s Tiger Stadium drama, it turns out, was just a temporary stay of execution: Wayne County Judge Prentis Edwards ruled today that the destruction of Tiger Stadium can proceed, effective immediately. While there’s still a faint possibility of a court appeal or intervention by the mayor, it seems likely that the backhoes will resume tearing down the Navin Field portion of Tiger Stadium as soon as this afternoon.

Readers of this site are probably already aware of what’s being lost here, but in case you’re not, I posted a reminder this morning on Baseball Prospectus Unfiltered.
