The Sporting Views:
Tigers could learn
from1 oland new
by Darren Everson
DAILY SPORTS WRITER
All year long, the Cleveland Indi-
ans and the Chicago Cubs have had
sell-out crowds singing "Take Me
Out to the Ballgame" in unison, and
why not: Fans in those towns have
majestic parks to watch baseball in.
Neither the Cubs nor the Indians have
won a league pennant in decades, yet
people are lining up to see 'em play.
Such happiness and good cheer
don't abound in Motown, though. The
number of Tiger faithful in the stands
has been dwindling for awhile now,
and the organization has done little
off the field to turn things around.
For the past couple years, the De-
troit Tigers have been anything but a
boring club. They're short on pitching
and they're not terribly fast, but they
score runs, and lots of them. Cecil
Fielder, Mickey Tettleton and the rest
of the lineup have led the majors it
homers the last two seasons.
Whatgives, then? The Tigers don'
have a superstation that televises al
the games like the Braves and Met,
do, so the fans aren't sitting at hom
watching. And these same fans ha
proven their loyalty to Detroit spo ,
as attendance figures at Red Wings
and Lions games attest.
The club's problem lies in where
they play. Tiger Stadium, the oldesl
park in the major leagues (along with
Fenway Park), is the culprit. People
just don't find it appealing to go seea
game inan antiquated stadium at night
on the wrong side of town.
I used to wonder how the Ci
have gotten away with such an o1m
park for so long, at least until I saw a
game there a couple weeks ago. Tiger
Stadium's flaw - age - is Wrigley
