My Al Kaline Moment

9 Apr

When I was editor of Style magazine (no longer published), our team picked 20 iconic Detroit Stylemakers for the 20th anniversary issue.

I had the opportunity to interview Al Kaline in 2005. He chose Comerica Park, the home of the Detroit Tigers. We met in the stands, while the team practiced. He was nice, gracious and humble. He talked about how much he loved baseball and the Detroit Tigers. In 2005, he was the special assistant to Dave Dombroski, then president of the Detroit Tigers.

But in his opinion, his proudest accomplishment was not his baseball prowess — it was being married 50 years to his high school sweetheart. We both teared up when he said it.

The photo above is a picture from the magazine.

What a special baseball player and special person!  RIP no. 6.

The Terminator and Me

29 Aug

You never know who you might meet at the mall. I just met the Terminator. No, not Arnold Schwarzenegger — Jeff Reardon, a baseball legend. Reardon played in Major League Baseball from 1979-1994 for many teams including the New York Mets and Yankees, Atlanta Braves and Boston Red Sox. According to Wikipedia, “Jeff Reardon was nicknamed The Terminator for his intimidating presence on the mound and his 98 mph fastball.” I met him at the mall post office where he was mailing out a baseball.

If you are a Terminator movie star fan, don’t worry. Terminator: Dark Fate¬†with Arnold will be released this November.
