9781589799288: The Tigers of '68: Baseball's Last Real Champions

The Tigers of '68 is the uproarious, stirring tale of this team-a group of hellraisers who brawled on the field and partied hard afterward. This book revisits the main performers of this illustrious team and weaves their stories into a cohesive narrative that captures all the drama and color of Detroit's 1968 season Hailed as a “sparkling saga” by Library Journal, Cantor's account relives a championship before the days of runaway salaries, divisional championships, drug suspensions, and designated hitters.

About the Author:

George Cantor worked as a reporter, columnist, and editor for thirty-nine years at both the Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press. He also wrote for the Detroit Jewish News and taught sports writing at Oakland University. He is also the author of Courtney’s Legacy, the story of his daughter’s accidental death at the age of eighteen. He died in 2010.

From Booklist:

All hell broke loose in baseball after 1968--free agency, labor strikes, World Series games at night. Journalist Cantor, who covered the Detroit Tigers during their championship season in 1968, relives that glory year and sheds new perspective on the team and the times. He recalls the memorable season as the year of the pitcher, when Tiger Denny McClain won 31 games, teammate Mickey Lolich 22, and hitters struggled throughout the sport. He also notes that, at a time of racial unrest, the Tigers and their black stars--Willie Horton, Earl Wilson, and Gates Brown--promoted a sense of racial cohesiveness in the city. Profiles of numerous team members, including fun-loving slugger Norm Cash and future Hall-of-Famer Al Kaline, round out this solid choice for most baseball collections. Wes Lukowsky
