As of right now, baseball is played EVERY DAY at the Tiger Stadium site. Little league, adults, and vintage 1860s style. The grounds are being tended to by a group of volunteers called the Navin Field Grounds Crew. If the PAL takes over, there will still be baseball, but only to the people that the PAL WANTS to play there. The average person won’t be allowed to play on the hallowed grounds. Also, the taxpayers will have to foot the bill for the maintenance of the site.
Leave it like it is and the whole city wins.
