The 1993 Detroit Tigers-Sparky Anderson’s Last Great Team Part 1

If you grew up as a baseball fan in the 1980s in Detroit, you were able to see the Detroit Tigers rise as a baseball power with a World Series championship in 1984 and an AL East title in 1987. They even almost pull off another division title in 1988 as they were in the AL East lead until September 5th when a 10-game stretch from August 24th till September 4th in which they went 2-8, cost them the lead and Boston took over and never looked back.

The Tigers needed to address their biggest need for the 1993 season.
