About this title

Synopsis:

On April 28, 1896, baseball fans traveled in horse-drawn buggies to watch the Detroit Tigers play their first baseball game at the site on the corner of Michigan and Trumbull Avenues. Starting out as Bennett Park, a wooden facility with trees growing in the outfield, Tiger Stadium has played a central


role in the lives of millions of Detroiters and their families for more than a century.



During the last century, millions of fans have come to Michigan and Trumbull to watch the Tigers' 7,800 home games, as well as to attend numerous other sporting, social, and civic events, including high school, collegiate, and professional football games, prep and


Negro league baseball contests, political rallies, concerts, and boxing and soccer matches.



A companion to the narrative history, almost two hundred rare photographs capture the spirit of 140 years of baseball in Detroit.


A Place for Summer furnishes a sense of the relationship between the community, its teams, and the various fields, parks, and stadiums that have served as common


ground for generations of Detroiters.
