On this Date in Tigers History
- 1952 — The Tigers acquired RHPs Ned Garver, Dave Madison and Bud Black and outfielder Jim Delsing from the Browns for RHP Marlin Stuart, LHP Dick Littlefield and outfielders Vic Wertz and Don Lenhardt.
- 1948 — Rookie Sam Vico drives in seven runs to pace the Tigers to a 10-3 win over the Browns. Vico is one better than a cycle, collecting two doubles, a triple and homer to back Virgil Trucks’ sparkling one-hit relief effort over six-plus innings.
- 1929 — It’s Charlie Gehringer Day in Detroit, and the popular second baseman handles 10 chances in the field, hits three singles and a home run, and steals home in a 17-13 win over the Yankees.
