I just found out today that Al Kaline died on April 6th. Kaline was a superstar with the Tigers during the 1950s and '60s, though not quite at the level of Stan Musial, Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays. He signed with the Tigers out of high school and was one of the few players never to play in the minors. He hit over .300 nine times and finished his career with 3,007 hits, 399 homeruns and 1,582 RBIs. Kaline was an outstanding fielder, winning 10 Gold Gloves and was named to 18 All Star games. He was a first ballot Hall of Famer and was nicknamed "Mr. Tiger." And last but not least he was a true gentleman, another shining example of America 1.0 now gone.
