The statue at the former City-County Building in downtown Detroit displays the true spirit of Tiger Town. This statue, designed by Marshall Fredericks and installed (sans jersey) at the City-County Building in 1958 is nicknamed "The Spirit of Detroit."

The tradition of dressing the 'Spirit' with a jersey began in 1997 when the Detroit Red Wings won their first Stanley Cup in 42 years. Since then it has also ’sported’ the jerseys of the Detroit Pistons, WNBA Detroit Shock, Super Bowl XL, and even a tuxedo when "The Three Tenors" performed at Tiger Stadium in 1999.
