History of Tiger Stadium

Wednesday, March 4, 2020

Michigan author Doc Fletcher will be hear to discuss his latest book: "The History of Tiger Stadium: A Love Letter to Baseball at Michigan & Trumbull", honoring The Cathedral at 2121 Trumbull, known affectionately as "The Corner." Although the structure is gone, the memories remain of days and evenings at the Cathedral on The Corner where - together with great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, uncles, aunts, siblings, children, godchildren, & friends - we have cheered our Detroit Tigers: Ty Cobb, Hammerin' Hank Greenberg, Hal Newhouser, Al Kaline, Stormin' Norman Cash, Tram & Looo, and so many more. Doc will share stories from the book of the characters on the field, in the stands, those in the neighborhoods surrounding the ballpark, as well as about the broadcasters who brought the action to us when we couldn't be there ourselves. Copies of the book will be for sale, $25 each.
