    A fun trip down memory lane....

    This is not a great book but it is a whole bunch of fun to read. Many of the stories are already well-known to us Tiger fans but some were brand new. The insight gained in some of the chapters was very interesting. I think there are a few factual mistakes or liberties taken with the writing, i.e., Al Kaline wore #25 his first year in the majors and Mr. Ebling seems to give the impression he was always #6. Nevertheless, it is very worthwhile reading for any Tiger fan!!
