    They should get right on that. Do they have a HOFer requirement?

    No, they retired Willie Horton's number.


    Yeah, the Tigers are really lagging behind when it comes to celebrating their greats. It is one thing for the Hall of Fame to ignore the Tigers, but their own team is too much.

    1 and 3 should be retired and they should have a statue of them turning a double play next to the Kaline statue.

    11 should be retired (Freehan).

    25 Should Probably be retired (Cash).

    47 for Jack Morris would be nice.

    And hopefully some day 24 and 35 will be retired. (Cabrera and Verlander).

    11 should probably be retired for Sparky Anderson along with Freehan (who was one of the best catchers in the AL during the 60's and early 70's).

    yeah. That is what I meant. 11 is already retired for Sparky, but Freehan is an important player in Detroit Tigers history.
