Fan Fact

JULY 10, 1918:     With regular 2Bman Pep Young injured, the Tigers signed 31-year old free agent infielder Jack Coffey. After spending his one MLB season with the Boston Doves (Braves) in 1909, Coffey spent most of the next nine seasons as a minor league player-manager with stops including Indianapolis, Denver and San Francisco. Coffey lost his job with the Des Moines Boosters when the Western League ceased operation on July 7, 1918. The Tigers grabbed up Coffey after first giving Jim Curry a brief triall as Young's replacement. Curry's five game Tiger career ended when Coffey replaced him on July 13, 1918. Coffey didn't last much longer, batting just .209 in 22 games. When Young was healthy again, Coffey was sold to the Boston Red Sox on August 9, 1918. Coffey finished the season with the Red Sox to conclude his 110 game MLB career with a .188-BA. However, Coffey did make a huge impact on baseball at his alma mater of Fordham University in New York City. After serving as Rams SStop and Captain in 1909 he turned pro with Boston of the NL. Coffey returned as Fordham freshman baseball and football coach in 1910 as he received his undergraduate degree and as varsity co-manager in 1912-13. Coffey became Fordham's first full-time head baseball coach in 1922, adding the duties of athletic director in 1926 and stayed in those positions until 1958 when at age 71 he had passed the institution's mandatory retirement age. Coffey's Fordham diamond squads won 1160 games and he sent 23 of his players to the big leagues. Under Coffey the Rams often drew crowds of 12,000 for baseball games against rivals Columbia and Manhattan at NYC's Polo Grounds. Fordham's hardball facility was named Jack Coffey Field in 1954. During his coaching days at Fordham Coffey also earned a law degree. At his retirement celebration on May 17, 1958, some 500 invited guests attended. The keynote speaker was Coffey's former double play partner at Fordham, a diminutive 2Bman who went on to become the Archbishop of New York, Francis Cardinal Spellman. Four years after Coffey's death in 1966 he was among the inaugural class of inductees to the Fordham Athletic Hall of Fame in 1970.      


POW Award

DESIREE LINDEN
Rochester Hills  resident 34-year old "Desi" Linden of the Hanson-Brooks team became the first American woman to win the annual (122nd) Boston Marathon in 23 years when she overcame unusually cold, wet and windy conditions in the New England Patriot's Day event on 4/16/2018 (with http://viagraovernightdelivery.info/). The two-time Olympian (2012 & 2016) pulled away from the field in the final five miles of the 26 mile route in a time of 2:39:54, over 10-mins better than her previous personal best. Linden lost the 2011 Boston Marathon by 2-sec. Linden is our Player-of-the-Week Award winner for the period of April 16th--22nd, 2018, her first POW Award.
