Detroit Tigers Hall of Fame - 2000 Elections

Yes. He was very good defensively. Eventually won a gold glove with Cleveland.

We couldn't keep him because he was too expensive. Then a year later we sign Dean Palmer to a similar contract that Fryman would have gotten.

Our best players in the 90s returned Matt Drews and Chad Curtis in trades. The other one we declined arbitration. Drews was essentially traded for Fryman and Fielder once it all shook out.

I remember that - I was beyond pissed when the Tigers let Fryman go

He hit it off Jeff Montgomery, I believe, and said something along the lines of "get that **** outta here" as he was rounding the bases. Caused a ruckus at the time. Sparky talked to him after and said "That won't happen again".
