Clocking Ticking Louder on Tiger Stadium Decision

While Friend of the Fungo Gary Gillette and the non-profit Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy work feverishly to raise funds to avoid, ahem, razing the ballpark, the City of Detroit’s demolition wheels are in motion.

At the very least, a demolition team is likely to start razing about 75% of the ballpark in May or June, as soon as the contract approved today is signed and the contractors get their effort in place.

I realize that Detroit has enough notable eyesores to top off 10 landfills, but what is the sudden rush to tear down the stadium? We’re at about nine years since the last game, what’s another three months?

Yeah, yeah, I know. First it’s three months, then it becomes another three months, and so on. Still, I’d like to see the City give the conservancy a little more time to make this work. After all, if some of Tiger Stadium is preserved, for once Detroit could be seen at the forefront of a preservation effort.

Stay tuned.
