About this item

This volume contains seven essays on the history and background of Detroit's Tiger Stadium, as well as memories of its souvenirs, its portrayal in literature, its neighborhood, and its closing. The essays discuss different team owners; the effects of the stadium on the game of football; the stadium's evolution, architecture, functionality, structure, and urban context; and different aspects of the stadium fight, including how the availability of public money affected the design and funding of major league baseball stadiums leading to the decision to replace Tiger Stadium, other attempts to redevelop Detroit after World War II and the efforts of the Tiger Stadium Fan Club to persuade the Tigers to stay in Tiger Stadium, and the efforts of different groups to redevelop or reuse the stadium after the Tigers abandoned it. Contributors are fans, journalists, players, and others. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
