Quintin Berry was supposed to be a stopgap measure for the Detroit Tigers when their starting center fielder, Austin Jackson, went on the disable list with an oblique injury. What Berry has turned into is a don't-stop-believin' story. Up until late May, Berry was a career minor-leaguer. Philadelphia, San Diego, Cincinnati and the New York Mets had all given up on Berry, who at 27 appeared to be running out of time to make it in the majors. Given the chance with the Tigers, he's more than making it. Heading into a weekend series in Tampa, Berry is hitting .318 and has a .405 on-base percentage in 110 at-bats. He has eight extra-base hits, has scored 23 times and knocked in another 12 runs. His 12 stolen bases in 12 attempts has injected some life in a slow, lumbering Tigers team that hasn't been able to score consistently enough with three-run bombs. Better yet for the defensively challenged Tigers, Berry is a solid outfielder who plays with the passion of a high school kid with a caffeine addiction. Now Berry has a message for those who didn't think he had enough game to play at the highest level. Click on the above video to watch it.
