Team Lineup at Stadium

Baseball in the Motor City

It’s a story that starts in 1896 when Tigers owner Arthur Vanderbeck bought the club and constructed a 5,000-seat wooden ballpark. By 1912, the team’s new ballpark, named Navin Field, could seat 23,000 spectators. But it was the 1930’s expansion project that gave Tiger Stadium the look that it retained for 70 years.

It became a colorful place with orange and blue seats and the famous flagpole to the left of dead center that caused problems for outfielders. The last game at Tiger Stadium took place on September 27, 1999, and many fans were saddened to see “The Corner” go.
