The Detroit Tigers are hosting the annual Negro Leagues Weekend starting this evening at Comerica Park.
Tigers skipper Brad Ausmus was asked about how good Iglesias and Kinsler could be together and responded “right there with Trammell and Whitaker.”
Every time the Detroit Tigers celebrate their 1984 World Championship team, the memories come flooding back.
It was a special tribute night at Comerica Park to the team that last won the World Series, and lifted a community, back in 1984.
Detroit fans seem to be getting what they want this offseason.
It’s safe to say that most Tigers fans like the acquisition of shortstop Jose Iglesias.
Lou Whitaker and Alan Trammell were the Tigers’ double-play combination — that is, the second baseman and shortstop — for more than a decade.
