Tiger Stadium now 3/4 gone
While the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy has been working on raising money to save a corner of Tiger Stadium, the city of Detroit - that part of it not tied up in perjury hearings, anyway - has been busily knocking the rest of it down. As of today, the Free Press reports that all but the slice of grandstand between first and third base is gone (you can see the photo for yourself).
"As it stands right now, the stop points indicated to the contractors are from the first base dugout to the third base dugout," project manager Scott Veldhuis told the Freep. The Conservancy says it's optimistic that it will have $169,000 on hand by a Monday deadline to preserve the remaining section for the time being; if you want to help put them over the top, click here.
