New book on Tiger Stadium includes chapter by meeeeeee

This has literally been years in the making, and the website still (mistakenly) says “not yet published,” but I am here to tell you that it is in fact available for purchase: “Tiger Stadium, Essays and Memories of Detroit’s Historic Ballpark, 1912–2009,” edited by Frank Rashid, John Pastier, Bill Dow, Michael Betzold, and John Davids of the Tiger Stadium Fan Club. And included among the remembrances and historical essays on the home of the Detroit Tigers for 97 years is a chapter by me, titled “The Mallparking of America: Tiger Stadium and the Subsidy Game,” which you can pretty much guess what it’s about.

I haven’t actually received my copy yet, so that’s literally all I can tell you about the book, except that with the talent assembled I’m super-excited to read it. I’ll post a fuller review once I have it in hand, but don’t let that stop you from ordering it right now.

  1. Neil,Thanks for this site,for all the articles you post and for getting in a book as well.And for letting people post and for the most part 98% of the posters keeping it civil.Sports has changed so much in the last 30 years and now with the shelf life of a sports stadium being 20 years or so I can only imagine what that will be in 5-10 years.

    1. Oh, hey, that’s a good point. Isn’t it about time for me to be demanding a new state-of-the-art website?

      1. If you build it we will visit it?
        Better,someone else builds it,someone else pays for it.You post on it and we visit it.

        1. I mean, this one still works as well as ever. But it would be nice to have more modern cupholders.
