Today's Tiger birthdays

Recommended Posts


Today's Tiger birthdays (10/9): None. Not a one. In their 115 year history, the Tigers have never fielded a player born on October 9. Further, there were no players from the old Detroit Wolverines of the 1800s born on October 9.

That seems impossible!

Today's Tiger birthdays (10/14): Erik Sabel (41), Vincent Maney (129, 1 game in 1912, died 1952).

Erik Sabel appeared in one game for the 2002 Tigers, pitching against the Indians in Cleveland. He faced two batters, surrendering a home run to current Tigers coach Omar Vizquel and a double to Ellis Burks. Burks came around to score on a Jim Thome single, saddling Sabel with a Tigers ERA of infinity. Vincent Maney played one career game in major league baseball - as a replacement player on May 18, 1912, when the Tigers went on strike to protest the suspension of Ty Cobb for attacking a heckler in the stands. Maney actually managed to reach base once via a walk, giving him a career batting average of .000 but an on base percentage of .500.
