Throwback: Jack Doles says goodbye to Tigers Stadium (1999)

Detroit Tigers

DETROIT, Mich. (WOOD) — Friday marks 20 years since the last game was played at the old Tiger Stadium.

It opened in 1912. Nine World Series and three All-Star Games took place there. The stadium also played host to 170 Hall of Famers.

Twenty years ago, News 8 Jack Doles sat down with fans, players and the late Ernie Harwell as they said goodbye to the old ballpark.

News 8 is replaying that package to commemorate the anniversary.  

Since 2000, Comerica Park has served as the home of the Detroit Tigers.
