Demolition has begun on Tiger Stadium. Bill McGraw of The Detroit Free Press reports:
"Amid the dust and bulldozers and roving bands of middle-aged men with cameras on the first real day of demolition at Tiger Stadium on Wednesday, it emerged that the city is planning to save three of the stadium's historic elements -- the flagpole and both foul poles."
Ernie Harwell, who is still fighting to save part of the stadium through the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy, remembers the good times at the corner of Michigan & Trumbull.
