DETROIT (AP) — Detroit is outlining a new vision for the former site of Tiger Stadium that would include a youth baseball field and a mix of stores, residential space and offices.

The Detroit Free Press reports a request for proposals issued by the city’s Detroit Economic Growth Corp. says the nonprofit youth sports organization Detroit PAL would build a new headquarters and maintain much of the Detroit Tigers’ former field for youth baseball.

The request says Detroit is seeking mixed-used development on a portion of the site. The deadline is May 23 to submit proposals. The city anticipates making a selection of a development team by late August.

The Tigers left for Comerica Park after the 1999 season. The last portion of the stadium was demolished in 2009.
