>>caption:  PISTON 1ST-ROUND DRAFT
CHOICE LUKE KENNARD<<

@ BROOKLYN, NY:

    Selecting 12th overall in the first
round of the NBA Draft the Pistons
plucked SG Luke Kennard from Duke.

    A 6-5.1/2 sophomore, Kennard
is considered a scorer from all ranges
no matter what defense he faces.  
Kennard also is rated as an adept
ballhandler and passer who has positive
possibilities in pick-and-roll sets.

    Kennard ranks second in Ohio high
school history in scoring. After finishing
third in Duke scoring as a freshman,
Kennard led the Blue Devils as a sophomore at 19.5-PPG game while
shooting 44 % from the 3-point line and 86% on free throws.

    One draft analyst listed Kennard as the best shooter in the draft.

  • Fan Fact

    JUNE 23, 1967:     The Tigers sold minor league INF Jake Wood to the Cincinnati Reds organization. Wood was the first home grown African-American player to come out of the Detroit farm system and become a Tiger starter. Signed out of Delaware State College in 1957, Wood moved up the ladder for four years and then debuted for Detroit with a bang in 1961. Wood earned the starting 2Base job, played in 162 of Detroit's 163 games and had career highs in almost all offensive categories and was named to the "Topps All-Rookie" team. His 14 triples led the American League and he became the first Tiger with 30 stolen bases since Gee Walker had that many in 1932. Wood hit 11-HR and had 69-RBI with a .258-BA out of the lead-off spot. However, Wood also set a new AL record with 141 strikeouts. That, and his inability to take advantage of his speed by learning how to bunt well, made Wood a platoon player in 1962. He was a regular again in 1963 until he underwent surgery for a dislocated finger. Wood then became a utilityman the rest of his career. Wood was just 1-for-20 (.050-BA) in 1967 when he was sent to Triple-A Toledo. This date's deal brought Wood back to the majors, but he hit only .118 in 16 games with Cincinnati and he was sent to 3A Buffalo in mid-August. Wood never played in the big leagues again. He concluded his pro career back in the Tiger farm system in 1969 at Montgomery of the Southern LGE where future major league managers Jim Leyland and Gene Lamont were his teammates.          


    POW Award

    ALEX AVILA
    The Tigers continued to struggle and Avila continued to hit during a 2-&-4 week of June 12th--18th, 2017.  Avila hit safely in five of the six games with three multi-hit contests, going 8-for-23 (.391) overall.  Avila socked his 10th homerun and had 4-R with 2-RBI.  Add in five walks and Avila had a .464-OBP.  Avila earned his second Player-Of-the-Week Award this year and fifth POW Award overall.
