Judge lifts Tiger Stadium's stay of execution
DETROIT – A judge has lifted Tiger Stadium's stay of execution.
Wayne County Circuit Judge Prentis Edwards rejected a request Monday by a nonprofit group to issue an injunction preventing further demolition of the historic Detroit ballpark.
Edwards agreed with attorneys for the city that the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy has little chance of success in raising enough money for a proposed $33.4 million redevelopment project.
Detroit Economic Growth Corp. executive vice president Waymon Guillebeaux said around 10:40 a.m. that demolition would resume immediately.
Tiger Stadium opened in 1912 as Navin Field. The Tigers departed for Comerica Park after the 1999 season.
