The Detroit Tigers are among baseball's most celebrated franchises. Four World Championships and five other World Series appearances are the result of some of the game's greatest players having worn the old English "D." Names like Cobband Kaline, Greenberg and Gehringer, and Gibson and Trammell starred during their days as Tigers. Readers will delight to these old and new anecdotes about Detroit baseball lore, recalling colorful players like pitchers Denny McLain and Mickey Lolich; the '84 Tigers' brilliant 35-5 start en route to a championship; and the 1999 finale at venerable Tiger Stadium when nearly 200 of its former stars returned for one last hurrah.

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!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
