Detroit Baseball Fans Clean Up Site Of Tiger Stadium

Detroit tore down the old Tiger Stadium in 2009 because it was "blight." But since then, the city has done little to maintain the site. So about a year ago, a few guys brought in some heavy-duty landscaping equipment, and mowed and cleaned it up. And it's evolved into a loosely knit group that comes down every other week to clean up and play baseball with their kids. But the city disapproves. It has fenced off the place and put locks on the gates, but people keep cutting them off and going in anyway.
