Tigers owner Mike Ilitch said he will personally lobby MI lawmakers to help finance a new baseball stadium. Ilitch: "I'll do whatever is required." Ilitch said his proposal last spring for a new stadium failed because it was thrust too suddenly on the public. Ilitch said he was surprised by the "severity" of the criticism directed at him during the stadium debate.
