2008 marks the 40th anniversary of the Tigers World Series win in 1968. Similar to what I did for both the 1984 and 1935 Tigers, I’m going to a run a day by day diary of that team’s exploits. I set up a seperate website for the diary and I’ll also be writing season retrospectives throughout the postseason. My first retrospective is up on Denny McLain.
It seems like I’ve done more work on the 1968 Tigers then any other subject. I wrote a brief synopsis of the 1968 Tigers in Tigers Corner 2007 and I have two articles in the 2008 edition coming out next March. I also wrote two biographies (Les Cain and Wayne Comer) for an upcoming book that contains biographies of all of the 1968 Tigers that’s also being published by Maple Street Press. Finally, if you want a lead in, you check out the 1967 American League Pennant Race website because a lot of the guys on that 1967 were key players in 1968.
