Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard will honor past Detroit Tigers players Alan Trammell, Ty Cobb, Al Kaline, Kirk Gibson, 1984 World Series Championship skipper Sparky Anderson, and legendary Tigers announcer Ernie Harwell.
Howard's mask also recognizes the four Tigers World Series Championship teams of 1935, 1945, 1968, and 1984.
One of my favorite things as a fan of all four Detroit professional sports teams, I love to see the interaction between players and coaches supporting each other,and this Howard mask is a tremendous showing of that...and, both teams, the Red Wings, and the Tigers, are both owned by the Illitch family.
A big shoutout to Bishop Designs and Jimmy Howard designing that great Hockey Mask honoring Detroit's oldest professional sports team, my beloved Tigers!
PLAY BALL⚾...er, Drop the Puck!
