Tigers History Lesson

Today’s Birthdays

On this Date in Tigers History

  • 1993 — Cecil Fielder becomes the third player in history to homer onto the left field roof at Tiger Stadium, doing so in the Tigers’ 11-5 loss to the Rangers. Harmon Killebrew and Frank Howard are the only other players to accomplish the feat.
  • 1976 — The Tigers’ rookie sensation Mark Fidrych shuts out the Orioles 4-0 for his eighth straight victory.

  • 1965 — Denny
    one-hits the Senators at RFK Stadium in a Tigers’ 1-0 win. The more stunning news is
    that the time of game was 1:05. Oh, wait, the game was called after just five innings…never mind.

  • 1906 — At Cleveland, the Naps top the Tigers, 5 – 0, in game called after six innings on account of rain. To underscore the soggy conditions, Detroit outfielder Germany Schaefer plays the last few innings wearing a raincoat over
    his uniform.
