Al Kaline, circa 1956


As a kid growing up, Al Kaline was the Tiger that every aspiring big leaguer knew. Does anyone remember Tiger Stadium Bat Days? Oh, how we would pound the cement! Imagine the noise 25,000 kids could make on a Saturday afternoon! The lucky ones of us would brag that we had snagged a Kaline bat. In second place of our esteem, but a distant second place, were bats from Horton or Cash. A Northrup was a big disappointment. Charles

  1. I wish. We banged the heck out of them. Kaline bats would send line drives darting everywhere; Northrups we couldn’t get more than pop ups
