DID YOU KNOW? (first posted APRIL, 2006, updated April 2017)

      The age old debate as to who was "The Greatest
Baseball Player of All Time" will likely continue for all
time.
      Was it Babe Ruth or Ty Cobb?
      Some historians even make a convincing case for
Honus Wagner.
      Cobb competed on the same stage as both Ruth
and Wagner. Most accounts of the time give Cobb
the edge on overall talent, even though Ruth was
both a pitcher and a power hitter while Cobb was
mediocre when he dabbled at pitching and rarely
chose to go for the longball.
      Rather than attempting to settle the great debate by quoting endless
statistics, let's allow that issue to go unresolved. It is, perhaps, a question
which is more fun to argue than to solve.
      However, one thing's for sure:    Tyrus Raymond Cobb was the greatest
Cobb in baseball history.

      Ty's younger brother Paul played college baseball in his native
state at Georgia Tech. Paul (given name John Paul...   [ Read More... ]

  • Seattle @ TIGERS



  • Fan Fact

    APRIL 25, 1932:     Utility infielder/pitcher Mark Koenig was released by the Tigers to the San Francisco Missions of the Pacific Coast League. Koenig had come to Detroit in 1930 after losing his starting SStop job to Leo Durocher with the New York Yankees. The Tigers unsuccessfully attempted to turn Koenig into a relief pitcher. (He had an 8.44-ERA over two years with the Tigs.)  Koenig would return to the majors later in 1932 to replace Chicago Cubs SStop Billy Jurges, who'd been shot twice attempting to prevent a woman's suicide. Koenig hit .353 in 33 games for the Cubbies, helping get them into the '32 World Series against Koenig's onetime Yankee teammates.


    POW Award

    JOHN HICKS
    Wielding the hottest stick for 3A Toledo (a .424-BA with 12-RBI), Hicks caught a 3:45am flight out of Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley to join the Tigers for a 2:10pm (Detroit time) Minnesota matinee on APR 22ND when Miguel Cabrera was DLed.  Although he'd been catching with the Mud Hens, Hicks took over at 1Base for Cabrera and went 2-for-5 with a double and an RBI in a 5-3 win over the Twins.  The next day Hicks was Miggy-like, providing key blows in a 13-4 thrashing of the Twins.  Hicks' 2-run single capped a 5-R/T-3rd that blew the game open.  His first big league homer was a 3-run/T-9th blast to the LField bleachers that concluded the scoring.  For the day Hicks was 3-for-5 with 2-R & 5-RBI.  For the two weekend wins that ended a 4-game Tiger losing skid, Hicks went 5-for-10 (.500-BA) with 2-XBH, 2-R & 6-RBI.  His .500-BA in three Tiger games (including one September contest last year) is a sharp contrast to the .063 he hit in 17 games for Seattle in his previous MLB experience during 2015.   Hicks is our Player-Of-the-Week for the period of April 17th--23rd, 2017, his first POW Award.
