Tiger Stadium Reprieve

From the Associated Press:

The Detroit City Council has granted Tiger Stadium a stay of execution.
The council voted 5-3 on Tuesday to reject a resolution that would have authorized the immediate demolition of the historic ballpark.
Crews began tearing down the stadium in June. A corner of the ballpark has been left standing while a preservation group tries to raise money to turn it into a sports museum.
The Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy was told to pay the city $219,000 by Tuesday to hold off total demolition. The group says it has $150,000 in hand and can have the rest by Friday.
The stadium's fate last came before the council in July, when a vote was delayed while preservation advocates and city officials negotiated.

Say, is the old Tiger Stadium "substantially complete" yet?

Is it true that on Opening Day next year that Angel Stadium will be the fourth-oldest major league ballpark?

*shudder*

Hmm... I wonder if we'll have a similar issue on our hands when/if DC United ever moves out of RFK. I think there's some merit to keeping at least part of RFK.
