Best/worst Tiger moments by decade

Recommended Posts

I thought this might be a fun exercise: What are the best and worst moments in Tiger history for each decade?

I'll start the ball rolling with the 1900s:

Best: Tigers clinch their third straight pennant, 1909

Worst: Win Mercer's suicide, 1903

One of the best for the first decade in the team's history has to be that huge 9th inning comeback against Milwaukee in the 1901 season opener.

The emergence of Ty Cobb rates as a highlight.

Losing a third straight WS in 1909 probably counts as a worst moment, as nice as it is to make it to WS three years in a row.

Forgot about that one. Another great moment was when Cobb hit that home run off Rube Waddell in Philly that supposedly knocked Connie Mack off the bench. That's one of my favorite games to read about: It ended in a 9-9 tie after 17 innings -- but not before a huge riot. Good times...
