The upper bleachers of  Tiger Stadium  provided cheap seats for generations of Tiger fans.   Thinly populated on this last day's game of a last place season, the bleacher section betrays little of its raucous reputation as the abode of some of baseball's loudest and rowdiest fans.

Tiger Stadium

The decision to build a new baseball stadium proceeded through a storm of controversy and opposition.  In the end big money talked and Tiger Stadium now appears headed for the scrap heap of history.

Architecturally, Tiger Stadium is a hodge podge of additions and mistakes that led to an accidentally wonderful aesthetic.  Spiritually, it provided an island of consistency in a sea of change in 20th Century metropolitan Detroit tying together generations, suburbs and cities in common memories.

Tiger Stadium grew up with modern Detroit. Here Detroiters witnessed triumphs of athleticism and the ending of  the disgrace of racially segregated sports.
