Return to Tiger Stadium

The rusted gate from Tiger Plaza still stands at the Tiger Stadium site, beckoning you on to the old diamond.

DETROIT -- At this link is my Sunday Inside Baseball column talking about Tiger Stadium. 

The last game at "The Corner" was in 1999 and the wrecking ball finished its job in 2009 but it's great to see a diamond back at the corner of Michigan and Trumbull -- and to see the old center field flagpole still standing.

Click here for my Flickr stream slideshow of my trip back in time to The Corner last week.
