Happy Baseball Birthday...Bill Freehan

Today is Bill Freehan's 72nd birthday.

My baseball hero played 15 big league seasons for my Detroit Tigers, collecting 1,591 base hits and 200 home runs.

There was no better catcher in baseball in the 1960s than Freehan, who won five consecutive Gold Gloves,1965-1969, and retired with a MLB record .993 fielding percentage. 

Happy Birthday to the greatest catcher to ever wear the Old English D, William Ashley Freehan.

Go Tigers!
