As we continue the Detroit Tigers Trade Value Series, this time with the trade of Mickey Tettleton, we are revamping the format to make it for readers to follow along by breaking the trade into three parts.
- The purpose of the trade
- Their career in Detroit
- Popularity among Tigers fans
Let’s begin with the first trade under interim general manager Joe McDonald.
Tettleton’s trade was buried among 1991’s off-season headlines
Ernie Harwell and Paul Carey were told after the 1990 season that after 1991, they were not going to be brought up as the Tigers radio team by WJR.
