The partial demolition of Tiger Stadium is nearly complete.
A spokesman for the Detroit Economic Growth Corp. says two demolition contractors have been instructed to preserve the portion of the historic ballpark between the dugouts. Crews have nearly finished knocking down the rest of the stadium.
Spokesman Bob Rossbach says MCM Management Corp. of Bloomfield Hills and the Farrow Group of Detroit will need another 45 days to complete work at the site, including cleanup.
Under a tentative deal reached last month, part of the stadium will remain standing until at least March 1 while preservationists seek to raise enough money to save part of the ballpark permanently. Details of that agreement are still being hammered out.
