  • Don Lund's "Playing Ball with Legends" - Autobiography Review

    Michigan Sports Hall of Fame legend Don Lund was considered the best Detroit High School athlete of his time. He earned the same praise as a three-sport letter winner at the University of Michigan. His professional baseball playing career started in the National League with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1945 and finished in the American League in 1954 with the Detroit Tigers.

    Then he went on to become a legendary NCAA Big Ten baseball coach at Michigan. And that's not all. The Detroit Tigers put him in the record books as the only person to serve the same major league club as a player, a scout, a coach, and a member of top front office management. Finally, he finished his career as Associate Athletic Director at Michigan.
