DETROIT -- Lou Whitaker isn't losing any sleep over Jose Iglesias wearing his No. 1.
Whitaker was at Comerica Park on Wednesday to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Game 4 of the ALCS, and his jersey number was the first thing mentioned when he met with the media.
"I guess I'm getting the tough questions right off the bat," Whitakers said with a laugh. "As I understand it, when he called the Tigers, he had the courage to ask for No. 1 and he got it."
At the time, there was a lot of buzz among Tiger fans, who thought the number should be retired for Whitaker, just as there was when Alan Trammell's No. 3 was given to Gary Sheffield.
Whitaker wasn't consulted about the move, but he doesn't seem to mind.
