Providing a behind-the-scenes look at the personalities and events that have shaped the Detroit Tigers’ recent resurgence, readers will meet the players, coaches, and management and share in their moments of greatness, grief, and quirkiness.

Impemba takes readers into the Comerica Park broadcast booth alongside the legendary Ernie Harwell, onto the team plane during the team’s two runs to the World Series, and into the clubhouse as Miguel Cabrera closed in on the 2012 Triple Crown. He shares personal stories about several Tigers stars, including Cabrera, Justin Verlander, Prince Fielder, Curtis Granderson, Ivan Rodriguez, Kenny Rogers, Magglio Ordonez, and more. If These Walls Could Talk: Detroit Tigers gives fans a taste of what it’s like to be a part of the Tigers storied history from a perspective unlike any other.

With his familiar shock of white hair and craggy, prematurely aged face and twinkling eyes, Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson was a one of a kind personality beloved by generations of fans not just in the two cities he led to World Series championships, but throughout the baseball world. When he retired in 1995 he was third on the list of all-time winningest managers, having accumulated 2,194 victories in managing the Cincinnati Reds to two championships in nine years and adding another with the Detroit Tigers whom he managed for seventeen seasons. Throughout his years near or at the top of baseball through his 2000 election to the Hall of Fame, Anderson rejected the airs of celebrity regardless of how prominent he became, frequently reminding players and friends alike that, "As long as you remember where you came from, you'll always know where you're going." Triumph Books, with archival material from both the Detroit Free Press and The Cincinnati Enquirer is proud to present this tribute to one of the great baseball personalities of the twentieth century.

Published Aug 2009

Curtis Granderson grew up on the south side of Chicago. He loved sports and was determined to become a successful athlete. But perhaps because both of his parents were teachers, he had an even stronger desire to succeed in the classroom. He loved learning for its own sake, and from an early age, the importance of education. Now an established Major League Baseball star, Curtis has not forgotten the lessons he learned growing up. These are lessons not only about the importance of education, but also about working hard to attain goals; lessons about character, integrity, and personal responsibility. In his book All You Can Be, Granderson shares these valuable lessons with his young fans. He has also invited fourth graders from across the state of Michigan to submit artwork that exemplifies their own goals, the best of which has been culled here to illustrate the themes of the book. This is not just a book for aspiring athletes, it is a book for any young dreamer about how he or she can develop the character to help them succeed, whether they want to be the next president of the United States, the best teacher in the country, or even the center fielder for the Detroit Tigers.

Published Mar 2009

Former MLB All-Star and Gold Glove winner Andy Van Slyke, now the first-base coach of the Detroit Tigers, takes you into the dugout, the clubhouse, and onto the field throughout the 2008 season to give you a rare inside look at the most highly anticipated season in the Tigers' storied 108-year history-day by day, game by game, as it actually unfolded. The book combines Van Slyke's insightful, introspective, sometimes humorous diary from the dugout and the playing field with veteran baseball writer Jim Hawkins' view from the press box in real time as the games actually occurred. Each entry is made without the benefit of hindsight, not knowing what the next game or the next day would bring. Stand beside Van Slyke in the first-base coach's box and sit beside him in the dugout to feel the emotions rise and fall with each win and each loss, as the Detroit Tigers, preseason favorites to win the 2008 American League pennant with their franchise-record $139 million payroll, deal with the daily grind of the 162-game season.

Genuine fans take the best team moments with the less than great, and know that the games that are best forgotten make the good moments truly shine.

Such moments include the impressive run to the World Series in 2006 and the clutch hitting of Kirk Gibson in 1984, as well as the horrendous years when the Tigers were in the cellar of their division and the particularly disastrous 2003 season. Whether providing fond memories, goose bumps, or laughs, this portrait of the team is sure to appeal to the fan who has been through it all.

Published Apr 2007

From being the only 30-game winner in more than 70 years to having the Gambino crime family order a hit for your murder, Denny McLain has surely seen it all: RICO charges from the U.S. government to touring the country as a popular musician playing on national TV and the Las Vegas strip before becoming a close jail-house friend to John Gotti Jr. I Told You I Wasn’t Perfect allows the former All-Star pitcher to share his cautionary tale with generations of baseball. In 1968, McLain set the baseball world on fire by being the first pitcher to win at least 30 games since Dizzy Dean 34 years earlier. But just two years later he was banned from the game for half a season, traded away to the laughing-stock Washington Senators where he entered into a never-ending battle with baseball icon Ted Williams. By 1972, he was a retired star, hustling games of golf. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s he was in and out of prison for charges including racketeering, loan-sharking, extortion, cocaine possession, and fraud before being included in wide-sweeping RICO charges that tried to connect him to Gotti and the violent underworld of the mafia. In this moving autobiography, McLain reveals how his desire for excitement and attention led directly to his downfall from being a popular public image and cost him his marriage, which has since been reconciled and remarried.

Motor City baseball fans haven't rocked this hard since 1984, when the Detroit Tigers went wire to wire behind the talents of Kirk Gibson, Alan Trammell, and a cantankerous, white-haired managed named Sparky. The cast of character has changed, with the likes of Pudge, Magglio, and a new cantankerous manager leading the way, but Jim Leyland's Tigers have all but erased 20-plus years of mediocrity with this incredible 2006 season. The once downtrodden franchise has taken the league by storm, setting its sights on a division title and perhaps even eyeing Motown's first baseball championship since the decade of big hair. Out of Nowhere chronicles the magical season that's been 2006. From spring traing to opening day, the Tigers' amazing climb to the top of the AL Central standings and their late-season pennant push, this lavishly illustrated commemorative book has everything a Detroit baseball fan could want. Written by longtime Detroit sports columnist George Cantor, Out of Nowhere details through words and photographs the best baseball season this city has experienced in more than two decades.
