The 1972 Detroit Tigers
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


After winning the 1968 Baseball World Championship, the Detroit Tigers looked to be sliding their way into obscurity. Though they still had some marquee players, including Kaline, Cash, Lolich and Freehan, they were quickly being eclipsed by the dynastic Baltimore Orioles. This book recounts how the hiring of manager Billy Martin changed that, and how the energized 1972 Detroit Tigers recovered from obscurity. This history is retold against the backdrop of a momentous summer in American history and provides a fresh view of those revolutionary times.

Author Biography
