Overview

The Detroit Tigers covers the history of major league baseball in Detroit from its beginnings in 1881 through the 2007 season. With over 500 carefully selected photographs, most of which have not been published before, William M. Anderson presents the highlights and lowlights of each season and gives a context for appreciating the Detroit careers of the players whose images grace the pages of the book.

The new edition of The Detroit Tigers begins with the historic final season of baseball at the corner of Michigan and Trumbull and prepares for a new century of baseball at Comerica Park, where the team has already made memories. Among the recent highlights covered in this volume are the Tigers being crowned American League champions in October 2006, Justin Verlander’s no-hitter in June 2007, and the Tigers’ historic trade in December 2007, which placed the team among the elite in baseball for the 2008 season. Anderson has traveled the county to find the most interesting and rarely seen photos for this volume, visiting all major repositories of baseball photographs as well as private collections. Presented chronologically with ample description, the photos form the core of this one-of-a-kind book.

The new edition of The Detroit Tigers also includes a foreword by current president, CEO, and general manager of the Tigers, David Dombrowski. Tigers fans old and new will appreciate the exhaustive history and striking images presented in this volume.
