Found November 28, 2013 on Baseball Hot Corner:
PLAYERS: Miguel Cabrera
TEAMS: Detroit Tigers
The Detroit Tigers mean a lot to me. I have been fortunate enough to shake Al Kaline’s hand, witness Lou Whitaker hit one onto the roof in 1984, see Sparky Anderson walk slowly toward the third base dugout before a game in Texas and hand a ball to the youngster on my left, watch Justin Verlander shut down the New York Yankees in the 2012 ALCS with the rowdies in Kaline’s corner, and from the same corner watch the San Francisco Giants pile out of the first base dugout in Game 4 of the 2012 World Series. Why do I note bearing witness to the sweep as a highlight? Simple. We were there. Being at the park is what the game boils down to for me. Baseball has provided me with more eternal memories than all of the other experiences of my life. I am a Tiger fan. This simple fact ties me to many friends and relatives both alive and on the other side. I am truly grateful for the game of baseball. Here are ten reasons why my fellow Tiger fans ought give thanks: #10 Uniform Stability Miggy ...

Top 10 Detroit sports moments of the last 10 (or so) years

Being a sports fan is tough. Being a Detroit sports fan is even tougher. I have endured the journey for 19 long years now.

So, my knowledge doesn’t go too far back and my dad reminds me of this every time the Lions lose a game they should have...

Tigers rumors: Miguel Cabrera wants to play first base again

With Prince Fielder headed to Texas, the Detroit Tigers have an opening at first base. Current third baseman Miguel Cabrera has the right man in mind: himself.

Report: Miguel Cabrera told Tigers he wants to play first base

With Prince Fielder on the move to Texas, Miguel Cabrera wouldn’t mind moving back across the diamond next season.

All Things Considered, Brian Wilson Could End Up Making the Most Sense as Detroit Tigers’ Closer

All of a sudden, the eccentric Brian Wilson has become underrated, which could quietly make him a perfect fit as Tigers’ closer. (jonaswashere, Flickr) If recent rumors are true, the Detroit Tigers may be inching toward a solution at closer with the flamboyant Brian Wilson, formally of the San Francisco Giants and perhaps soon formally of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

A look back at the baseball career of Turkey Stearnes

It would be fitting that Thanksgiving should be a day to remember a baseball player with the first name of “Turkey.” Norman Thomas Stearnes was a former Negro Leagues outfielder who spent 20 years playing in the Negro Leagues (1920-1939). Because of the time he played, Turkey unfortunately was well passed his playing career by the time Jackie Robinson had broken the color barrier...
