Tiger Stadium for sale...

...but you can't buy it.

On Monday, Tiger Stadium, perhaps for the final time, will be open to visitors.

But not just anybody is invited. Only representatives of companies readying bids to remove and auction parts of the old ballpark at Michigan and Trumbull will be allowed inside for a look.

There is a group that wants to preserve the stadium. I'm sympathetic towards them, but I was past that stadium years ago when the Tigers still played there, and it looked rough then. Still, I think the day is coming when someone will propose a way to preserve the facade of these historic old ballparks while turning the inside of the stadium into something economically viable.
