The memories of the a great ballpark are almost gone in Detroit, but there will be one last moment of glory for Tiger Stadium.

Princess Grace Awards Gala.jpgA movie is being made at Tiger Stadium days before the Detroit ballpark's expected demolition. "The Irishman" tells the story of union organizer and mobster Danny Greene.

The picture stars Ray Stevenson, Val Kilmer, Vincent D'Onofrio and Christopher Walken. Producer Bart Rosenblatt says Detroit is standing in for 1970s-era Cleveland.

Filming began today at the stadium, which opened in 1912 as Navin Field.

The Tigers departed after the 1999 season.

The city says demolition work could begin as early as Monday.
