This book offers a facsimile reproduction of the 1946 history of the Detroit Tigers.Fred Lieb's team history of the Detroit Tigers was originally published in 1946 as part of the celebrated series of major league team histories published by G. P. Putnam. With their colorful prose and delightful narratives, the Putnam books have been described as the Cadillac of team histories and have become prized collectibles for baseball readers and historians.High or low in the standings, the Detroit Tigers have always been a fighting baseball club. From the time of Watkins' famous Detroits of the early National League, who in 1887 defeated the St. Louis Browns in a circus fifteen-game World Series, to Steve O'Neill's Tiger World Champions of 1945, headed by home-run king Hank Greenberg, much happened in the early days of Detroit baseball.The most frightening Tiger of them all was the incomparable Ty Cobb, who many argue is the sport's best player ever. And around Cobb we see the historic cast that won pennants in 1907, 1908, and 1909: Hughie Jennings with his ""Ee-yah"" yell from the coaching line, the inimitable Germany Schaefer clowning at second, Walloping Sam Crawford, the great shortstop Donie Bush, dashing George Moriarity, and the pitching titans, Smiling Bill Donovan and George Mullin.""The Detroit Tigers"" is filled with anecdotes and intimate glimpses of the players, managers, and owners who throughout the years have made the Tigers one of the most competitive and colorful teams in baseball. The Tigers have always given the fans a great show - and they give the reader an exciting time in this reprint of Fred Lieb's ""The Detroit Tigers"".
