Thread: Name This Tiger

  1. #26
    Newhouser lived on the street my father grew up on. Hal's final resting place is about two miles from my parents' present house.

    Captain, are you saying that your father grew up at the same time and on the same block as Hal Newhouser, when Newhouser was a Tiger? Do tell. If your father was there at the same time as Hal, great. If your father was a generation behind, there still must be some neighborhood pride/stories to recall.


    Kirk Gibson (worst Tiger ever) should thank his lucky stars that it was HE who hit those home runs in the '84 and '88 World Series to become the most fabled Michigan-born ballplayer since everybody forgot Gehringer and Newhouser.

    This (in)famous Tiger is shown wearing the pajamas of the Atlanta Braves. The high leg kick is a dead give-away.

    Negative. Here's a hint: he's a World Champion.

    They lived on the same street at the same time, my father as a kid and Newhouser as a Tiger. He was a clubhouse kid for the team growing up, so he knew all the players. When he and I went to Cooperstown a few years back, he spent a lot of time in the library looking up the players who would babysit him in the dugout (no stars) while my grandfather sold programs. The biggest name he actually got close to as a kid was Billy Pierce.

    He's never really talked much about it. I guess he doesn't think it was such a big deal. I'll ask him who he really knew and about Newhouser next time I see him.

    If I could figure out how to paste a picture . . .

    That's remarkable about your father. People write books about things like that, y'know. The fly-on-the-wall vantage point.
    I hadn't realized that Ken Macha, the current manager of the Brewers, is Newhouser's cousin.




    Ok, who is this Tiger? For bonus points, what was significant about his debut with the Tigers?

    No, it's not Mark Wagner. Here's the first hint: He was a teammate of Mark Wagner for a few years.

    Here's another hint: An anagram of his name reads as "ADORED UPTOWN"
