Book Description:
For over 100 years, Michigan and Trumbull was the scene of some of the most exciting baseball ever. This book, the collaborative work of 34 members of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR), portrays 50 classic games at the corner, spanning the earliest days of Bennett Park until Tiger Stadium’s final closing act. From Ty Cobb to Mickey Cochrane, Hank Greenberg to Al Kaline, and Willie Horton to Alan Trammell, the illustrious names of Tiger legends shine forth in these pages. A must-read for those who love the crack of the bat, the glory of green grass, and tales of great games well told. ‘[M]ore than anything, [Tiger Stadium] has been a cherished home to our memories’ -Ernie Harwell, Tigers broadcaster Preface, Basil M. ‘Mickey’ Briggs April 28, 1896: There Used to Be a Haymarket Here, Marcus W.
