I am pretty sure Castillo was named to be Mud Hens' manager, but resigned prior to the season starting.  It was sudden and unexpected, at least from what I can recall.  I'm not sure what year that was.  I wonder if that assault and battery in 1999 was the reason?

I went to school with a guy who looks a lot like Jerry Turner. His name was Haywood but he called himself "So Smooth". From now on, Jerry Turner is "So Smooth" in my mind.

had no idea Ruhle had hung around the majors for 10 yrs after his stint with the Tigers. When George Kell said his name it always sounded like there was some vaguely profound implication being made....

I remember when he and Fidrych were going to be the backbone of our rotation for years to come.

Had to be kind of bittersweet for him to be playing for Houston when the '84 run happened.

I still remember getting home one summer day and having my Dad tell me that a Tiger had tied a MLB record by going 7-7, then asking me who did it.   I failed miserably while guessing nearly every other Tiger.

The Amazing Record of the Detroit Tigers’ Cesar Gutierrez

I remember looking at the morning box score and seeing 7 for 7 next to Gutierrez.  I was only 7 years old, but I knew it was really unusual especially for someone I had barely heard of.

I want that hat.

The hat doesn't include the gritty look.
