Tiger Stadium In Detroit/ Fenway Park In Boston- Open This Day 1912

Tiger Stadium

On this day in 1912 two major league ballparks opened. Tiger Stadium in Detroit and Fenway Park in Boston. Tiger Stadium was called Nevin Field from 1912-1938 and Briggs Stadium from 1939-1960 and Tiger Stadium from 1961-99. I have been to games at 35 past and present major league ballparks and Tiger Stadium is my all-time favourite. It was a wonderful place to see a ballgame. Fenway Park, the home of the Red Sox is still in use. Fenway is great if you have great seats and it can be an awful place to see a game if you have bad seats.
