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. This monumental book of the Detroit Tigers documents all the best moments and personalities in the history of the team, but also unmasks the regrettably awful and the unflinchingly ugly. In entertaining—and unsparing—fashion, this book sparkles with Tigers highlights and lowlights, from wonderful and wacky memories to the famous and infamous. 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.
