Even though I've long since made my peace with the exodus to Comerica Park, it's still sad to read today that the Detroit Economic Development Corporation has voted to tear down the rest of what remains of the old girl.
In so doing, the EDC rejected the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy's plan to restore what was left of the stadium and turn it into a museum and playing field.
Demolition could begin in the next two weeks, according to the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation (DEGC).
Demolition began last summer, and the stadium was to have been completely torn down until the conservancy won Detroit City Council approval to keep part of it standing and allow time to come up with a plan to preserve it. What remains of the ballpark runs from dugout to dugout.
