April 20, 1912. A mere five days after the sinking of the Titanic, two iconic ballparks opened. Tiger Stadium in Detroit and Fenway Park in Boston. Today, only Fenway Park remains, but the memory of Tiger Stadium lives on. The final game took place on September 27, 1999 and the last pieces of Tiger Stadium were torn down nearly 10 years to the day of the last game on September 21, 2009.
Celebrate the historic corner of Michigan and Trumbull with our new Tiger Stadium Crate. The ends are made to look like home plate and the sides are street signs - "Michigan" on one side and "Trumbull" on the other. The two streets representing the great ballpark on "The Corner" so aptly named by the great Tigers radio broadcaster, Ernie Harwell.
