If you can endure Andrea Isom's bizarre yelling in the above clip, you'll learn that emergency manager Kevyn Orr would like to make the Tiger Stadium site a public sports complex. The plan would preserve the field's original baseball diamond, which is really the only thing everyone agrees needs to happen. This is the third new proposal for Tiger Stadium since May, when developer Francois DeMonique proposed building an African-themed "hotel and entertainment complex." June saw Major League Baseball float the idea of building a youth development center, which caused DEGC president George Jackson go bananas, making national news by accusing MLB of trying to "scam" Detroit.
