Tiger Stadium

    Prev Next

    On September 27, 1999 the last game was played at Tiger Stadium. 8 years and 1 day later, a group of local Detroit photographers were granted access to this magnificent stadium. I was fortunate enough to be one of them.

    Tiger Stadium is slated for demolition at the end of this year.

      What made that park so great was no matter what time of day, you walked through these dark corridors than were hit with this sudden explosion of green. Day or night. I used to cut an occasional night clas at Wayne State and wonder on down to the park. I'd sit up in the bleachers, with the fun crowd. This was the late 70's and at some point someone in the stands would start the song from the 68 run and soon we were all singing along, "We're all be hind our baseball team. World Series bound and pickin' up steam. Go get 'em Tigers!"

      Beautiful shot of the stadium. It's such a shame they are tearing it down.
