Tigers History Lesson

Today’s Birthdays

On this Date in Tigers History

  • 1986 — The Tigers acquired catcher Mike Heath from the Cardinals for RHP Ken Hill and a player to be named (first baseman Mike Laga).

  • 1971 — Despite belting six home runs — three by Bill Freehan, two by Willie Horton, one by Aurelio Rodriguez — at Fenway Park, the Tigers lose to the Red Sox, 12-11. The Sox have only one homer, a grand slam by Bob Montgomery. Rico Petrocelli’s pinch single with two outs in the ninth drives home the winner.

  • 1905 — Mistaking her husband for a burglar, the mother of minor league outfielder Ty Cobb shoots and kills him,
    an incident that will be cited as the reason for Cobb’s intense desire to succeed. Cobb will make his major-league debut with the Tigers later this month. There’s been speculation over the years that this was no accident.
