As I was talking about the NBA draft and the hopes the Pistons would keep Trey Burke in state, the person I was talking to said "You know, I don't think there are any Wolverines on any of the Detroit pro sports teams." As I got to thinking about it, I think he may be right. I believe Jeff Backus was the last holdout with the Lions. I don't think the Red Wings have had anyone since Aaron Ward. Can't remember the last time the Pistons had a Wolverine (not that there were that many in the league for the last 15 or so years). Obviously no Tigers as I think there are rarely more than three or four M baseball players in the majors at a given time.
Can anyone prove the hypothesis wrong? Anyone know the last M player to play for the Pistons or Tigers (was it Bill Freehan?).
