~ “The Fenway Park center field new concrete and steel bleachers, being built in center field to replace the wooden grandstands, are destroyed by fire in an early afternoon blaze.

1915 Detroit Tigers Team
1915 Tigers Team Stats
~ Despite looking spiffy for their formal team portrait and winning 100 games, all while having Ty Cobb win his 9th straight batting title (.369 BA), the ‘15 Tigers would disappointingly finish one game behind the eventual World Champion Boston Red Sox.

1900 Tigers Team Stats
~ Did you know that the 1900 Tigers were considered a minor league team? The American League was formed the next year (1901), thus giving the team major league status.

1901 Tigers Team Stats
~ Here's the '01 Tigers, in their 1st season as part of the newly formed American League. Looks like Kid Gleason (middle row, 2nd from left) didn't get his new uniform yet as he's still wearing his 1900 New York Giants jersey.

1911 Tigers Team Stats
~ Another dress-up affair for the boys from Detroit, 24-yr-old Ty Cobb had what you might say his finest year: 147 R - 47 2B - 24 3B - 127 RBI - 83 SB - .420 BA, not too shabby!
