Detroit Tigers Hall of Famer Al Kaline passed away on Monday. In all 15 seasons with the Tigers, he was a 10-time gold glove winner at right field. By 1955, he was the youngest player to ever win the American League batting title and finished second to Yogi Berra in voting for the A.L. MVP.
Kaline only appeared in one World Series, and he sure made the most of it to say the least. He recorded a .379 batting average along with 8 RBI’s to lead the Tigers to the title in 1968.
He became the first Tiger to have his number retired with the number “6” in 1980 and was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. Al Kaline was 85 years old.
