Denny McLain Bob Gibson Musical Duet Here's an odd clip from the Ed Sullivan Show of October 13, 1968: Denny McLain of the Detroit Tigers performs on the organ. He is then joined by Bob Gibson of the St. Louis Cardinals on guitar. The Tigers had just beaten the Cards in the World Series three days earlier.

Eddie Gaedel Midget Pinch Hitter Probably my favorite sports story is the day a midget, Eddie Gaedel, batted in a major league game. The date was August 19, 1951. The lacklustre St. Louis Browns were hosting the Detroit Tigers in a Sunday doubleheader. Browns' owner Bill Veeck promised that anyone who bought a ticket would see a memorable sight. He was right. Gaedel, all 3'7" of him, took part in a brewery promotion between games. Gaedel, clad it a batboy's uniform bearing the number 1/8 and carrying a toy bat, made baseball history in the first inning of the second game when he batted for outfielder Frank Saucier. Bob Cain, the Detroit pitcher, nearly doubled over in laughter at the sight of Gaedel and walked him on four pitches--all of them high. Once Gaedel trotted down to first base he was replaced by pinch runner Jim Delsing. Gaedel's picture appeared in virtually every newspaper in North America the next day. That same day American League president Will Harridge banned midgets from baseball. Most of the players involved in the stunt relished their connection to it. Jim Delsing said, 'A lot of guys have hit 50 home runs in a season, but I'm the only guy who ever ran for a midget.'

Ty Cobb Day 1924 Detroit Tigers' great Ty Cobb was honored by local dignitaries before a home game at Navin Field versus the Washington Senators on Saturday, May 10, 1924. Cobb, 37, who was in his 20th season with the Tigers, was given a set of books as a token of appreciation for his many exploits on the baseball field. (Detroit's ballpark was called Navin Field in 1924. It was later renamed Briggs Stadium and then finally renamed Tiger Stadium.)

Ty Cobb Steals Third Base This is a terrific action photo snapped by famed baseball photographer Charles Conlon that is nearly 100 years old! (Some sources date the photo to 1909; others claim it was taken in 1910.) Ty Cobb of the Detroit Tigers steals third base. Jimmy Austin of the Philadelphia Athletics is the third baseman. Austin was upended by Cobb's hard slide. Notice there's no uniform number on Austin's back. They did not come into vogue until the late 1920s.

Mark Fidrych SI Cover 1977 One of Sports Illustrated's more famous covers from the 1970s featured pitcher Mark (The Bird) Fidrych and Sesame Street's Big Bird. The quirky Fidrych was a breath of fresh air on the baseball scene in 1976 when he won 19 games for a fifth-place Detroit Tigers team that finished 24 games out of first place. Fidrych was named American League rookie of the year. Arm and knee injuries ruined his career. By the end of 1980 Fidrych was out of the major leagues.

Honus Wagner Ty Cobb Photo Two of baseball's all-time greats (Honus Wagner of the Pittsburgh Pirates and Ty Cobb of the Detroit Tigers) pleasantly chat prior to a 1909 World Series game. Wagner's Pirates won the Series in seven games. It was Detroit's third consecutive trip to the World Series. They lost all three. Cobb was not quite 23 years old at this time. He'd play in the majors until 1928 but never get to another World Series. The 1909 World Series also marked Wagner's last post-season appearance. Wagner was 35 at the time. He played until age 43--retiring in 1917 as baseball's all-time hits leader. Cobb would break that record.
