A Tour of Detroit’s Baseball Stadiums Past & Present

Source: Curbed Detroit

It's that time of year again (our favorite time of year for some of us)! Detroit is a baseball city, and as we prepare for another season of Detroit Tigers baseball, we'll take a look back at 136 years of Detroit baseball park history. Of the eight diamonds featured, five no longer exist, three were the home of our Negro League team the Detroit Stars, and one was built outside of the city limits to dodge stodgy blue laws.

We've updated some info in this map, including recent news on Hamtramck Stadium (one of the only Negro League stadiums still standing) and development at the old Tiger Stadium, which is now home to the Detroit PAL Headquarters and Willie Horton Field of Dreams.

If you're heading out to Comerica Park this year, this handy guide will give you tips on how to get there, what to see, and where to eat.

As always, feel free to share memories of your favorites in the comments or hit us up on the tip line.
