Tiger Stadium tributes keep coming, but not in Detroit

Perhaps you have heard of Tiger Stadium's legendary right field porch.

Way back in 1994, the Texas Rangers' Ballpark at Arlington incorporated one, too; see here.

This month, the Mets' new home, Citi Field, incorporated one, too; see it here. Apparently their big boss grew up at Tiger Stadium and wanted one of his own. (But it does not excuse their Domino's-esque logo, above.)

So, number of Tiger Stadium architectural homages in major league stadiums stadia: two.

Number in Detroit: zero.

But we do have an off-center scoreboard.
