Events at Tiger Stadium
Seating in Tiger Stadium carries with it a virtual encyclopedia of memories for the citizens of Detroit. This stadium saw crowds packing the seats for both Detroit Tigers games and Detroit Lions games. It was known around the Motor City as “The Corner” since it was built on the intersection of Michigan and Trumbull.
Tiger Stadium wasn’t always known as Tiger Stadium though. Over the years it has been called Navin Field and Briggs Stadium. Finally, in 1961, it became Tiger Stadium. In the intervening years, fans filled the seats to watch the Detroit Lions play from 1938 to 1974 before the y moved on to the Pontiac Silverdome. The Detroit Tigers enjoyed an even longer existence at Tiger Stadium, selling seats for baseball games from 1912 to 1999. During that time the stadium worked its way into the hearts of Detroit fans even though at times its outdated design drew criticism. But for baseball purists, the seats in Tiger Stadium would always carry the aura of past heroes and childhood memories.
Today Tiger Stadium carries with it an uncertain future. Although designated a historic landmark, plans are being made for its demolition. But it will be a sad day when the seats of Tiger Stadium no longer ring with the cheers of fans.
