Gordie Howe, my favorite hockey player and all around good guy, is 87 today!
This is a pretty interesting story about the Tigers of 1915. The are not one of the most remembered versions probably because they didn’t win the World Series.
On May 11, 1915, the Detroit Tigers rattled a 20-year old Red Sox’ pitcher named Babe Ruth in a 5-1 win at Navin Field. The victory put the Tigs 4 1/2 games ahead of Boston and improved their record to a glossy 18-7, 3 1/2 games ahead of the next closest team in the American League. The Tigers were on their way to the best season in the history of the franchise to that point.
