We're gonna hafta pass. The weather is just gonna get too weird this afternoon. Hubby didn't think it would be worth the risk of gas $$ and leaving the dogs alone just to get rained out.

I talked to Gs at the game yesterday...the forecast is for the severe weather to reach Detroit sometime after 10 pm...as long as the game doesn't go into extra innings, it should be over before the storms hit.

Crews erect demolition fence around Tiger Stadium

FREE PRESS NEWS SERVICES • June 25, 2008

Crews have begun encircling Tiger Stadium with fencing to prepare for the demolition of the former home of the Detroit Tigers.

The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press report Wednesday that workers have been erecting the 8-foot fence this week for the demolition that could begin within days. No date has been set.

A contract to raze the old ballpark was finalized this month with MCM Management Corp. of Bloomfield Hills and Farrow Group of Detroit.

A nonprofit group has been trying to raise enough money to save part of the old ballpark.

Memories of the stadium came up across town at Comerica Park on Tuesday. Members of the Tigers' 1968 championship team were celebrated at a ceremony 40 years after rallying to beat the St. Louis Cardinals.

Construction crews prepare for demolition at Tiger Stadium
Mark Hicks / The Detroit News

DETROIT -- Hours after Mike White learned Tiger Stadium would soon be encircled by a fence, closing its walls to the public in anticipation of demolition, he raced there with a camera.

"I wanted to see it one last time," the 34-year-old Ferndale graduate student said Tuesday after snapping photos near a gate. "I have a lot of memories. ... I just hate to see it go."

This week, crews began erecting the enclosure -- signaling the beginning of the end for the historic stadium near Michigan and Trumbull.

Earlier this month, a demolition contract was finalized the same day Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick granted an extension to the group trying to save a portion of the site where the Detroit Tigers last played in 1999 before moving to Comerica Park.

MCM Management Corp. of Bloomfield Hills and Farrow Group of Detroit have started the process of obtaining permits to raze the stadium and sell parts for scrap, according to the Detroit Economic Growth Corp. The city's quasi-public agency handles development and is executing a plan approved by the City Council and Mayor Kilpatrick.

A demolition date has not yet been set, said Waymon Guillebeaux, DEGC vice president of contract services.

Kilpatrick set an Aug. 1 deadline for the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy Group, which has said was enough time to prove it has a $12 million to $15 million financial plan to save the baseball diamond, 3,000 seats and an area that would house Hall of Fame broadcaster Ernie Harwell's sports memorabilia collection, some of which is now at the main Detroit Public Library.

The deal could hinge on U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, D-Detroit, to securing about $15 million from the federal 2009 budget.

The conservancy also has said it can now secure the $369,000 it failed to produce by the previous June 1 deadline the group was given by the DEGC.

The City Council and the DEGC would ultimately have to approve a plan.

Late Tuesday, metal poles wrapped with yellow caution tape remained on Trumbull as workers collected waste and a security guard monitored the grounds.

Fans such as Stan Wieckowski, 31, of Garden City, who cherishes four souvenir stadium seats, welcome a change to the former Major League Baseball site.

"If they keep a portion, that's fine, but other than that it needs to go," he said before shuttling to a Tigers game. "It's time."
