DETROIT (AP) - Detroit officials have approved a preliminary agreement to redevelop part of the former site of Tiger Stadium that would include a youth baseball field and offices.

The city’s Economic Development Corp. on Monday announced the agreement with nonprofit youth sports organization Detroit PAL and the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy.

Detroit PAL would build a new headquarters at the site near the youth baseball field, which would roughly cover the same area used by the Detroit Tigers for their field. Two additional areas will be kept open for possible future residential, retail or commercial redevelopment.

Tiger Stadium opened in 1912 as Navin Field. The Tigers left for Comerica Park after the 1999 season. The last portion of the stadium was demolished in 2009, but people still use the field.
