City Council set to vote on fate of Tiger Stadium

DETROIT It may be the bottom of the ninth for Tiger Stadium.

The City Council is expected to vote today on the old ballpark s final fate. The council may decide to demolish the entire stadium or choose to preserve a portion of it as a historic landmark and museum.

A preservation group was told to come up with enough money to save part of the stadium by Friday. The group says it has raised enough money for the project in the form of donations, loans, a federal earmark and tax credits.

A council committee voted Monday to recommend that part of the ballpark be saved.

Crews began demolishing the stadium last month.

The ballpark opened in 1912 as Navin Field and the last major-league game was played there in 1999.
