If you’re a lifelong Detroit Tigers fan, then you know baseball is a game of numbers. From knowing the number of no hitters Justin Verlander has thrown in his career, to Ty Cobb’s career batting average, each fan knows these stats like the back of their hand. With 100-plus seasons of Tigers magic, there’s never a shortage of team trivia fans can brush up on.

 

Veteran baseball writer Danny Knobler has compiled every fact and figure Tigers fans should know in Numbers Don’t Lie: The Biggest Numbers in Detroit Tigers History (Triumph Books, June 2015). Whether you’re a rookie attending your first game at Comerica Park or a veteran who remembers Denny McLain’s days on the mound, this book takes a look at the numbers of memorable moments in the team’s history. Highlights include:

 

  • A foreword by Jim Price, former Tigers catcher and longtime commentator for Detroit Tigers Radio Network
  • A look at the 1984 season when the Tigers won the World Series, defeating the San Diego Padres and winning 35 of their last 40 games
  • Carlos Guillen’s 3:30 AM walk-off home run against the Yankees in 2007
  • Willie Horton’s 36 home runs in 1968

 

Numbers Don’t Lie: The Biggest Numbers in Detroit Tigers History is the first book of its kind, not only because of its focus on numbers, but because it covers multiple generations of Detroit baseball, tying the past to the present. Fans of this entertaining franchise won’t want to miss out on this new release this summer.
