They paid too much attention to his career 3.90 ERA and not his 254 victories, staggering 175 complete games, and three World Series championships.
Trammell career was overshadowed by marquee shortstops Cal Ripken Jr.
has made this even more special, Morris said. older you get the more appreciative what it means. All the time wondering if this day would ever come is erased. It did come, and it amazing. I not sure I can put into words all of the emotions I going through.
go in with Alan Trammell is overwhelming for me. I can think of a better scenario of going with a former teammate than a guy that I respect and love so much. He simply was consistent.
Now, after not having a Tigers player elected into the Hall of Fame since 1992, the Tigers have two players going into Cooperstown a quarter century later.
Finally, the Tigers great 1984 team, which won the franchise’s last World Series, is represented in the Hall of Fame.
think a lot of people in Michigan always wondered why a team so good, and so dominant, had nobody represent them in the Hall of Fame, Morris said. trying to be as honest as I can. Tigers baseball is magnified after finally getting acknowledged from that great team.
gives me a sense of pride.
got to be a warm fuzzy day for Tigers fans.
At a time where the Tigers are embarking on a significant rebuild, this proud franchise can take a bow.
Two of the greatest players to ever wear a Tigers uniform, who distinguished themselves with their incredible talent and ferocious style of play, this summer will receive baseball greatest honor.
