Title says it all. Walk off Grand Slam to beat Toronto 7-3. That gives him 2 HR and 8 RBI the last two games. Raburn has 0 HR and 2 RBI all year. Glad the Tigers kept him.
I was thinking of starting a thread asking about speculation as to why the Tigers have been so dissapointing this year. That is still a good question in my opinion, but first, let's be happy about this victory! Maybe this will get the Tiggers back on track.
With all of the media attention on Fenway turning 100 years old this past weekend, Tiger Stadium also turned 100, although it is no longer around of course. What are your thoughts on Tiger Stadium? For me it was where I spent many days watching Chet Lemon or Kirk Gibson, while sitting in the outfield with my Dad.
I think it is a shame that the city does not do more to recognize the old stadium or site.
It opened the same day as Fenway, and Babe Ruth hit his 700th HR there as well...
Here are a couple of stories regarding the site, and the old Stadium:
Boos are heard at the ballpark as Inge pops out, but the Tigers take the lead 3-1.
