Great, another reason to feel really old. I was an adult watching many of those games you guys were born on!:depress:

That's when I met Gibby.:dead:

I was with my dad and my brother on my dad's boat, which was docked down on Jefferson by Metro Parkway. We saw this guy on the next boat that I immediately recognized as Kirk Gibson. I said "Dad, that's Gibby!" My dad said no, to get back to work (we were waxing the boat). Then with my back turned, my dad went over there to introduce himself. My brother came up to me and told me it was Gibby. Duh...:classic:

I remember that game. I remember that year well. The Tigers came close to the playoffs. Gibby was unbelievable.

This is a GREAT WEBSITE FIND!!

This isnt the day I was born but I remember this game well because I was sick laying in bed as the Lakers were dismantling the injured Pistons 4 games to 0 in the finals....Isiah Thomas had a bum leg but still scored 40 some points but I was too sick to watch but I still had my radio on and was listening to the 1st place Tigers playing the hated Yankees at Tiger Stadium...Detroit was in 1st place by 1/2 game and went into the bottom of the 9th trailing 6-1 but Ernie Harwell's voice announced the 6 run 9th that won the game for the Tigers on Trammells grandslam with 2outs in the bottom of the 9th! 6 runs scored after 2 were out!

Don Drysdale gets this win as the National League beats the American league 2-1. Catfish Hunter gets the loss, as the National League scores in the top of the ninth to get victory. Tom Seaver collects the save for the NL squad.

Tigers in the game...

Bill Freehan, Al Kaline (replaced due to injury) and Dick McCauliffe!

Hey! Nice to see people born on the same day. I don't meet too many.

Anyways, if I am not mistaken The Tiger were in Cleveland, and they beat us 8-4.

on another side note, suzanne vega was also born on July 11, 1959 (i was in thr early am, she was born in the pm).

I dig her early stuff, not so much her last 2records...but she is still cool

the detroit creams were the team that eventually became the tigers. they were called the creams because the owner at the time (i forget the name) said they'd be "the cream of the league". the name stuck for a couple of years, and eventually changed.

as for my b-day, oct. 12, it was 2 days after they won the 68 world series.

Tigers had an off day today and tomorrow after starting the season with a loss then a win.

The next two games would be losses in extra innings.

For the season, they would finish in 3rd with an 85 - 77 record.

IN the baseball encyclopedia it only shows the Wolverines from 1881-1889 or so.

The Tigers started in 1901. I see no Detroit Creams though Ernie Harwell would probably know better than the encyclopedia.

1969.

Only two games on my birthday.

The Tigers didn't play, but the Cubs continued their late season slide with a loss to the Reds.

I just realized:

My mom, dad, sister, brother, wife, three kids, and myself were all born during baseball season. That's everyone (except my dog, which was born in Feb.)

The Tigers are 4-14 on May 28 during my lifetime (three days off). That hurts.

On a slightly more positive note, I forgot that this fun game happened on my birthday:

Rookie Daryl Patterson came in to spell Mickey Lolich but gave up 3 runs in the 6th and lost to the hapless Washington Senators 6-3. But, the Tigers apparently wouldn't cry too much...as they went on to win the World Series against the Cardinals that year.
