KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of books on the St. Louis Cardinals and Connie Mack continues his professional research in baseball with this history of the Tigers, from the struggles of the 1880's to their present fame as World Champions in 1945. Detroit at the turn of the century could barely support a ball team;- today Briggs Stadium with 55,000 capacity isn't large enough even during the regular season. And here are the men who have helped make Detroit a great baseball town -- Ty Cobb, Hank Greenberg, Hughie Jennings, Mickey Cochrane, etc.,-and the outstanding personality of Frank Navin, who lived just long enough to see his Tigers win their first real world series. Seasonal play by play -- for Tiger fans primarily, but no baseball fan will want to miss this.
