Tiger Stadium Link Roundup

Not much is being said in the media this week leading up to what would have been the 100th anniversary of Tiger Stadium (Navin Field when it opened in 1912) so I thought I would at least post some videos and links to relevant Tiger Stadium information. Tiger Stadium Links

August 4, 1956 footage of Tigers versus Yankees at Briggs Stadium

On this 2011 Detroit Tigers Opening Day, let's take a stroll down memory lane to The Corner. This color footage is from an August 8, 1956 game at Briggs Stadium (later renamed Tiger Stadium) against the New York Yankees.

Here is the box score from the game -

NYY 2 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 - 4 6 0 DET 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 x - 5 9 1

Mickey Mantle hit two home runs off of Tigers great, Virgil Trucks (he pitched 2 no-hitters in 1952), but the good guys came from behind in the 8th inning on Al Kaline's second home run of the day (2 men on, no out) to win 5-4.
