1999: Baseball's Detroit Tigers play their last game in Tiger Stadium after 87 years in the stadium. The final game is an 8–2 victory over the Kansas City Royals. In the decade after the Tigers left the stadium for their new home, Comerica Park, several rejected redevelopment and preservation efforts finally gave way to demolition of the stadium on Sept. 21, 2009, although the playing field remains on the site.
