The Detroit Tigersby Frederick G. Lieb, Tom Stanton (Foreword by), Richard "Pete" Peterson (Editor)
High or low in the standings, the Detroit Tigers have
Fred Lieb's team history of the Detroit Tigers was originally published in 1946 as part of the celebrated series of major league team histories published by G. P. Putnam. Known for their lively prose and engaging narratives, these Putnam books have become prized collectibles among baseball readers and historians.
High or low in the standings, the Detroit Tigers have always been a fighting baseball club. From the time of Watkins's famous Detroits of the early National League, to Steve O'Neill's Tiger World Champions of 1945, much happened in the early days of Detroit baseball.
The most frightening Tiger of them all was the incomparable Ty Cobb, who many argue is the sport's best player ever. And around Cobb we see the historic cast that won pennants in 1907, 1908, and 1909: Hughie Jennings, the inimitable Germany Schaefer clowning at second, Walloping Sam Crawford, the great shortstop Donie Bush, dashing George Moriarity, and the pitching titans Smiling Bill Donovan and George Mullin.
The Detroit Tigers is filled with anecdotes and intimate glimpses of the players, managers, and owners who throughout the years have made the Tigers one of the most competitive and colorful teams in baseball. The Tigers have always given the fans a great show-and they give the reader an exciting time in this reprint of Fred Lieb's The Detroit Tigers.
