Demolition stopped at Tiger Stadium

June 6, 2009


— A halt was ordered Friday to the demolition of Tiger Stadium, just hours after crews began tearing down what’s left of the historic ballpark.

Wayne County Circuit Judge Isidore Torres issued a temporary restraining order to stop activity at the site, said Robert Rossbach, spokesman for the Detroit Economic Growth Corp.

The injunction was requested by the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy, a nonprofit group that had tried to raise money to preserve and redevelop the ballpark. But their $33.4 million plan was rejected by the city’s Economic Development Corp. board on Tuesday.
