1968 World Champion Detroit Tigers

Thanks to the Detroit Athletic Company for this photo of the 1968 Champs from the Motor City.

The Detroit Tigers won 103 games and ran away with the '68 American League Pennant.

The '68 Tigers were the last pennant winning A. L. team before baseball expansion in 1969.

In the World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Tigers rallied from a 3 games to 1 Cardinals series lead,  winning the final three games.

The Tigers victory was the third in team history.

The 1935 and 1945 Tigers teams were Detroit's previous big league champions.

The Tigers have played in 12 World Series.

Besides the above mentioned champs,  the Detroit Tigers also won the 1984  World Series.

Who's your favorite player from the '68 team?

Is it the Series MVP, LHP Mickey Lolich?

How about the Hall.of Fame right fielder,  Al Kaline, or Mr. Grandslam,  Jim Northrup.

If you follow this blog, you know my answer.
