The site of old Tiger Stadium (formerly Briggs Stadium, formerly Navin Field, formerly Bennett Park) was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. After much controversy, Tiger Stadium was torn down in 2009. The field is currently being maintained by a volunteer group called the Navin Field Grounds Crew. Interestingly, the stadium was also home to the Detroit Lions football team from 1938 to 1974. If you look toward right field, try to imagine Mickey Mantle, or Jason Thompson, or Norm Cash, coming to bat, then hitting the ball over the three right-field decks into the lumber yard (look for the water tower).
