Mr. Tiger

Al Kaline, probably the most beloved Detroit Tiger of all, turns 80 today.  A decent guy and a great ballplayer.

His stats are interesting.  Home runs, 399, just short of the 400 club.  Batting average, .297, just short of .300.  Doubles, 498--so close.  But he had 3007 hits, and that puts him in a rare group indeed.

Poor guy. First people think he's a battery and then they think he's a sleeper cell
