I spent most of my time trying to remember Norm Cash and Willie Horton's names, even though their faces were burned into my memory. I suck at names. Also they wouldn't accept "Donnie Bush" or "Harvey Kuen" -- I figured out the extra N on Kuen but Donie's weird spelling caught me.

Missed (other than those named): Bobby Veach, Bill Freehan, Dick McAuliffe, Tony Phillips (another just because I was misspelling the damn name), Billy Rogell, Lu Blue, Jim Northrup, Charlie Maxwell, Matty McIntyre, Johnny Bassler, Ray Boone, Vic Wertz, Jimmy Barrett, Roy Cullenbine, Steve Kemp, Dick Wakefield, Darrell Evans (this one was bothering me b/c I know the '80s Tigers really really well), Hoot Evers, Bob Fothergill, Mickey Stanley.

Still, 27, plus I'm giving myself credit for Tony Phillips and Donie Bush because I was just spelling their names wrong. Figuring I would have had Cash, Horton, and Evans given more time I guess that's okay.

I'm extremely upset with myself for not getting Tony Phillips considering he was such a favorite of mine as a youngster I emulated his batting stance for a few years.  Definitely was My Tiger for a while.  I don't know how I got Veach and Bush and Lu Blue and didn't get Tony Phillips and Lance Parrish.  I'm retarded like that sometimes.
