Podcast: Tom Stanton on ‘The Final Season’ 20 Years Later


Tom Stanton attended every home game of the 1999 season at Tiger Stadium. He wasn’t that interested in that year’s games or team, he was trying to pay tribute to a place that contained rich memories of his father and grandfather, and to soak in as much of the sights, sounds, and smells of the historic ballpark before it closed. His book The Final Season: Fathers, Sons, and One Last Season in a Classic American Ballpark captured the events, the people, and the feel of Tiger Stadium, providing an essential time capsule as the 20th anniversary of the final game at Michigan & Trumbull approaches.
