The Big 50: Detroit Tigers

The Men and Moments that Made the Detroit Tigers

By Tom Gage / Foreword by Alan Trammell

 

Contact: Sam Ofman, Triumph Books, 312.568.5450, s.ofman@triumphbooks.com

 

No team in Major League Baseball has had the same name in the same city as long as the Detroit Tigers. All it takes to earn that distinction is 116 consecutive seasons of highs, lows and the fan loyalty to stick it out through them all. In more than a century of baseball, the Tigers have contributed more than their share to the history and tradition of America’s pastime.

 

In The Big 50: Detroit Tigers (Triumph Books, April 2017), award-winning sportswriter Tom Gage combines his encyclopedic knowledge and passion for the Tigers to explore the most significant elements of franchise history. From the early years of Ty Cobb to the recent dominance of Miguel Cabrera, Gage provides a thorough and thoughtful ranking of the men and moments that helped define the Detroit baseball experience. Highlights include:

 

  • A heartfelt foreword from 6-time All-Star and World Series MVP Alan Trammel
  • Detailed biographical profiles of Tigers legends, including Al Kaline, Sparky Anderson, Justin Verlander and more
  • How Ozzie Virgil broke the color barrier for the Tigers in 1958, and why it took the franchise so long to integrate
  • A look back at the biggest plays in franchise history, from Goose Goslin’s 1935 World Series walk off to Magglio Ordóñez’s home run to clinch the 2006 pennant
  • Anecdotes on the most colorful personalities in Tigers lore, including Ty Cobb and Mark “the Bird” Fidrych


The Big 50: Detroit Tigers honors its subject with a detailed and entertaining history that fans of all stripes will find value in. Both diehards and the new generation of Tigers supporters need to make room on the shelf for this great new reference.
