Of the eight charter teams in the American League, which was established in 1901, the Detroit Tigers is the only franchise whose name has remained unchanged for the duration. In its formative years, its most famous, and feared, player was Ty Cobb, who spent more than two decades with the team, including half a dozen seasons as the team’s player/manager. Other great Tigers include Hank Greenberg, Mickey Cochrane, and Goose Goslin, who led the team to its first World Series win in 1935. Other great players who have worn the Detroit Tigers uniform are Al Kaline, Denny McLain, and Mark “The Bird” Fidrych. In 2012, Miguel Cabrera became the first player since 1967 to win a Triple Crown, but the name most people still associate with the Detroit Tigers is probably Sparky Anderson, the former Cincinnati Reds manager who guided the team to 1,331 wins between 1979 and 1995, including a World Series victory in 1984.
