Tiger Stadium

Tiger Stadium was a stadium located in the Corktown neighborhood of Detroit, MI. It hosted the Detroit Tigers Major League Baseball team for nearly a century before that franchise moved into the new Comerica Park in 2000. It also hosted the Detroit Lions of the National Football League for many years. It was declared a State of Michigan Historic Site in 1975 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1989. It was demolished in 2007. The stadium also was nicknamed 'The Corner' for its location on Michigan Avenue and Trumbull Boulevard.

Tiger Stadium opened in 1912, the same day Boston opened Fenway Park, but baseball had been played on the site since 1896, five years before the Tigers or the American League existed. Navin Field, the original name of the park, was built on the site of old Bennett Park. It was named after owner Frank Navin, and it was renamed Briggs Stadium in 1938, two years after Walter Briggs took over the team.  Briggs Stadium was renamed Tiger Stadium in 1961.
