DETROIT (AP) -- Tiger Stadium may get a second lease on life.
The Detroit City Council is expected to vote Tuesday on rescinding an earlier vote to demolish all of Tiger Stadium.
Councilwoman Barbara-Rose Collins says Monday that a conservancy group, led by broadcasting legend Ernie Harwell, apparently has come up enough money to turn a portion of the ballpark into a sports museum.
The city set Friday as the deadline for the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy to raise enough money to save part of the old ballpark.
Demolition of the stadium began last month. Two Detroit-area contractors expected to make $1 million from selling scrap from the project.
The ballpark opened as Navin Field in 1912, and closed in 1999.
