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.

Tigers Spring Training

16 Mar


The Detroit Tigers played the St. Louis Cardinals during spring training at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, FL. Motown fans cheered the Tigers to victory with the final score of 3-0. The Tigers management graciously interacted with the fans. General Manager Dave Dombrowski posed with a fan (top left), while Manager Jim Leyland (lower right) autographed a ball for a young fan. The best part was the sunshine and the win.
