SPORTS: Demolition ordered to stop at Tiger Stadium
DETROIT (AP) – A judge has put a stop to the demolition of Tiger Stadium just hours after crews began tearing down what’s left of the historic ballpark in Detroit.
A spokesman for the Detroit Economic Growth Corp. says Wayne County Circuit Judge Isidore Torres issued a temporary restraining order to halt demolition at the site
A nonprofit group requested the restraining order. The Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy 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.
A hearing on the order will be held Monday morning.
