Council Approves Tiger Stadium Demolition

July 27

Detroit City Council has cleared the way for demolition of Tiger Stadium.

The council voted 5-to-4 this afternoon to authorize a public-private
partnership to take control of the vacant sports venue that was home to the
Tigers for eight decades.

The decision ends years of debate over what to do with the stadium.

The council vote gives the Detroit Economic Development Corporation authority
to decide the stadium’s fate.

Earlier, Hall of Fame sportscaster Ernie Harwell made his case for saving Tiger
Stadium from the wrecking ball and asked for postponement of a decision.

The Tigers moved to


Park in 2000.
