  • I'm one of biggest TIGER FANS in the world.

He was a Horse A**. He missed his calling he should of played in the NFL. OH thats right he had a couple roof toppers HR (BATTING PRACTISE )in Tiger stadium in front of the old Tiger owner the frist pizza man that owned the TIGERS before MR.I. They sign him that night. Look it all up its all true. I was there for all of them live. I seen the DODGER HR on my TV. I rest my case he is no All Star. The TIGERS had a team of ALL STARS in 1984, started out 35&5 that year. The team never look back after that great start.(the team played like All Stars because of the skipper Sparky Anderson) WHO IS in the HEARTS of all TIGERS FANS & RED LEGGS FANS. YES I said RED LEGGS not REDS. That is there NAME.
