, Heinie Manush (116, played for Tigers 1923-27, died 1971), Mutt Wilson (121, 3 games in 1920, died 1962),

In the pantheon of great baseball names, or in this case not so great, I think I would rather be called Mutt my whole life, rather than Heinie.

That sweater wasn't part of the uniform.  He had just arrived at the park after finishing the morning shift at his other job, delivering milk.

Sunday's Tiger birthdays (7/30): Scott Fletcher (59), Mickey Mahler (65), Gus Triandos (87, played for Tigers 1963, died 2013), Joe Coleman Sr (95, played for Tigers 1955, died 1997).

379433.jpg10073-82Fr.jpg9080_2286844_Rep_Fr.jpg47553c_lg.jpg

Last year at this time, I offered 1000 points to anyone who produced an image of Mahler (3 games in 1985) with the Tigers.  No one collected.  This year, to drum up interest, I offer 1004 3/4.
