It's 2019 and 20 years since Tigers Stadium last hosted real games. It feels much longer for me.  Most of today's massive, yet standard , template parks found today offer limited escape from the daily grind.  We are hammered by ads and over hyped cheering moments. At Michigan & Trumbull, the game was the focus. The crowd energy was sincere and spontaneous. I miss the comfy place and it's cramped quarters but, it heralded astounding vantage points in both upper and lower decks. The scoreboards always revealed the game status, not an ad for tires or tiresome t-shirt tosses. The Corner allowed generations of fans to love their team. Now, it seems owners bemoan that 20 years into a 'new' place that it is worn and in need of tremendous updates to remain competitive. Alas, we barely make a generation without the threat of a new sponsor for the stadium name or need to replace the ball park. We do love the dynamic of disposability in America. I thank Tiger Stadium for feeling unique and thusly, providing many splendid memories in my 28 visits.

Best park to watch a game. You could get any closer! Was lucky enough to be at the last game anbd see all the Tiger greats run out for one last time! Something I'll never forget.
