( From the Detroit Tigers Twitter Page.)
Bill Freehan was the best catcher in Detroit Tigers history, and, since I first saw him play at Tiger Stadium in 1967, has been my All-Time favorite ballplayer.
Most of you know what Bill Freehan has ment to me, so I won't go into to much right now.
I'm hoping to get a series of posts together, maybe starting later today, about Bill, the accolades I've seen today, thoughts on his career, and, of course, his baseball cards.
Please remember his widow, Pat Freehan, and his family today, I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks, again, for stopping by.
Rest in Peace, Bill Freehan.
