Have you seen the Detroit Tigers All-Decade
team? A panel of judges compiled the list that ranks the top Tigers
players, in their respective positions, throughout the past decade.
list is interesting because of who is on it and who is not
baseball existed in Detroit prior to 2006, you wouldn’t be able to tell
that from looking at this list. Most of the players are from the 2006
the Tigers didn’t give us the best of years before then, but should
players like Tony Clark and Robert Fick be excluded from it?
By the way,
Bobby Higginson did make the list. He is one of only three
players on it that were not on the ’06 team.
get me wrong. Ask anyone and they will tell you that the 2006 Tigers
were my favorite team of players. They had determination, and always
displayed a come-from-behind attitude. When their season began, we only
hoped that they might reach .500 — never expecting they might reach the
World Series. So, it is nice to see many of those names on it.
you are going to compile a list spanning ten years, shouldn’t that list
have more diversity?
