Fakten

  • Home of Major League Baseball's Detroit Tigers from 1912-1999. The team moved to Comerica Park to begin the 2000 season.
  • Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick announced on June 16, 2006 that most of Tiger Stadium would be torn down for retail and upper-level lofts, but that part of the baseball diamond, and part of the stadium structure would be preserved for the redevelopment of the site.
  • Tiger Stadium was opened as Navin Field in 1912 at a cost of $300,000, and named after Frank Navin, the team owner. Navin Field's official capacity was 23,000.
  • In 1924, Navin Field's original stands were doubled-decked increasing the official capacity of the stadium to 30,000 seats. The team and stadium were bought in Walter Briggs in 1935, and expanded the next year to boost the capacity to 36,000 seats.
  • In 1948, Tiger Stadium became the last stadium in the American League to install lighting for the field.
  • The stadium was officially named Tiger Stadium in 1961 by owner John Fetzer.
  • In 1938, Cherry Street, which had been the northern border of the stadium, was vacated allowing the stadium to expand to a capacity of 52,416, and it was officially renamed Briggs Stadium. This was the last major expansion of the stadium.
  • The Farrow Group and MCM Management Corporation began demolition of the stadium on June 30, 2008.
