FINANCING FOR NEW TIGER STADIUM SET BACK
Published July 6, 1995
MI Gov. John Engler's rejection of casino gambling as a funding methid for a new Tigers' stadium last week "set back" the team's latest efforts. The Tigers believe they must get started building this year "or they'll lose still another season of playing in a new stadium." In his column in the DETROIT FREE PRESS, Bob Talbert reports that a source close to Tigers/Little Caesars/Red Wings Owner Mike Ilitch said that "if they can't start now, the Tigers will be forced to move." Talbert writes that if a new stadium is rejected this time, "don't be surprised to see Ilitch move not only the Tigers out of Detroit but the Little Caesars headquarters, too" (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 7/2).
