Tiger Baseball In 1973
(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
Today’s photo is from the 1973 season and now shows the contrast between the construction of Jervey Athletic Center (yesterday’s Historic Picture Of The Day) and the completed Jervey.
You can see that this picture predates any stands down the 3rd base line at Tiger Field. Fans would bring their lawn chairs and situate themselves along the fence line to watch the game.
The grassy hill that lead up to Jervey Athletic Center also served as “stands” during big games with overflow crowds in the 1970’s.
