Three Value-Added Items to Close Out Your Week

For your consideration…NewspaperXSmall.jpg

  1. 50 years ago today the Tigers acquired RHP Herm Wehmeier from the Cardinals for cash. How much cash? Not sure. In seven games in 1958 (three starts), Wehmeir finished with a 1-0 record and a 2.38 ERA. The Tigers released him 368 days later.
  2. On this date in 1994, Tigers legend Neifi Perez, then with Central Valley Rockies (California League), pulls an unassisted triple play on a line drive.
  3. Who knew? The Tigers are 17-16 all-time against the Yankees at Comerica Park. On the other hand, the Tigers are 150 games under .500 all-time at Yankee Stadium.

Enjoy the weekend.
