Tigers History Lesson

Today’s Birthdays

On this Date in Tigers History

  • 1998 — In the third inning of a 7-5 Tiger win, Toronto starter Woody Williams serves up consecutive homers to Juan Encarnacion and Frank Catalanotto, walks a batter, and tees up another for Tony Clark.

  • 1988Jack Morris one-hits the Orioles in the first game of a doubleheader sweep, winning 2-1,
    for his 14th victory. Doyle Alexander scatters six hits over eight innings for his 14th win of the year, 7-4, in the finale.

  • 1971 — With rookie catcher Tim Hosley hitting two homers and driving in five runs, the Tigers trip the Yankees, 10-7. Les Cain pitches six innings for the win. Cain finishes with a 10-9 record with 145 innings, but contends he is forced to pitch by Manager Billy Martin while he has a sore arm. Cain later claims that it did permanent damage to his arm and he sues the Tigers. In a landmark decision, the Michigan Bureau of Workman’s Compensation will order the Tigers to pay Cain $111 a month for the rest of his life. A lump sum payment is later agreed upon.

  • 1955Al Kaline becomes the youngest batting champ in history, as he wins the American League crown at age 20.

  • 1952Hal Newhouser wins his 200th game — his last win for the Tigers, who will release him in early 1953.

  • 1908Ed Summers pitches two complete-game wins over the A’s, winning the opener, 7-2. The second game goes 10 innings with another rookie, Biff Schlitzer, that ends 1-0 on a Claude Rossman drive for
    an inside-the-park home run. Summers allows just two hits. With the White Sox idle, the Tigers move to a half-game out of first.
