My Favorite Tigers Growing Up

5. Mickey Tettleton – I was all about his batting stance, his wad of chew, and his love of Froot Loops.  He hit 112 home runs in 4 years with the Tigs, and he represented the team in the ’94 All-Star Game.

4. Cecil Fielder – He’s fat, he crushed home runs, and he endorsed triple cheeseburgers. ‘Nuff said.

3. Jack Morris – The Tigers all time leader in wild pitches (155), and eighth all time in all of baseball (206).  He had 162 wins in the 1980’s, a no-hitter in ’84, and two complete-game wins in the 1984 World Series.  Hall of Fame, please.

2. Alan Trammell – Another Tiger that should be in the Hall of Fame.  With a WAR of 66.8, better than almost every shortstop in Cooperstown, why not?  Tram could pretty much do everything.

1. Lou Whitaker – I still have his Starting Lineup displayed in my house.  Watching him turn double plays with Tram is a memorable part of my childhood.  And to be on an episode of Magnum, P.I., you must be pretty “Sweet”.  Look it up.
