The Desert Southwest: 4,000 Years of Life and Art
Trivia About A Season in the B The Tigers were a team of hell-raisers, the second coming of the Gas House Gang. They brawled on the field and partied hard afterward. They bickered with each other and ignored their manager. They won game after game with improbable rallies on their last at-bat and grabbed the World Championship by coming back from a three games to one deficit to beat the most dominant pitcher in the World Series history in the deciding seventh game.
Their thirty-game winner, Denny McLain, played the organ in various night spots, placed bets over the clubhouse phone, and incidentally, overpowered the American League. Their prize pinch-hitter, Gates Brown, had done hard time in the Ohio Penitentiary. Their top slugger, Willie Horton, would have rather been boxing. Their centerfielder, Mickey Stanley, a top defensive outfielder, would unselfishly volunteer to play the biggest games of his life at shortstop, so that their great outfielder, Al Kaline, could get into the World Series lineup.
The story of this team, their triumph, and what happened in their lives afterward, is one of the great dramas of baseball history.

Award-winning journalist George Cantor, who covered the Tigers that year for the Detroit Free Press, revisits the main performers on the team and then weaves their memories and stories warts and all into an absorbing narrative that revives all of the delicious—and infamous—moments that made the season unforgettable. The belief has passed into Detroit folklore.
Award-winning Detroit columnist George Cantor revisits the World Series champion Detroit Tigers with unparalleled insight into what the season meant to a reeling city filled with delirious fans. The book delves into the details of a year when fantasy became reality--the Tigers chewed up their opponents, spit them out, and catapulted to the top without looking back--and provides fans with the opportunity to relive a season in history that baseball aficionados won't soon forget.
Genuine fans take the best team moments with the less than great, and know that the games that are best forgotten make the good moments truly shine. This monumental book of the Detroit Tigers documents all the best moments and personalities in the history of the team, but also unmasks the regrettably awful and the unflinchingly ugly.
In entertaining—and unsparing—fashion, this book sparkles with Tigers highlights and lowlights, from wonderful and wacky memories to the famous and infamous. Such moments include the impressive run to the World Series in and the clutch hitting of Kirk Gibson in , as well as the horrendous years when the Tigers were in the cellar of their division and the particularly disastrous season.
