Twenty years ago today, the Tigers won the World Series. It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long, but a few of the players on that team are on the coaching staff of the current team. And I can only think of a couple of players in the entire league who played in 1984.
And with the anniversary comes the end of the diary. I had a lot of fun doing this, and it brought back some pleasant memories. Considering they’ve only made the playoffs one time since then, they’re cherished memories.
The Cards/Astros game started late and the Astros are up 1-0. Carlos Beltran homered, again. If the Astros make it to the World Series, he could set some records. Heck, even if they don’t he could set some records.
On the radio, everyone is writing off the Red Sox. It’s a whole new ball game at Fenway, but they’ll have to probably win all three to have a solid chance.
Someday, I’ll be sitting here in October watching the Tigers. Sooner would be preferable to later.
I’m leaving early tomorrow for Toronto. Another wedding. By the time I get back, the league championships should be winding down, if not over with. Have a great weekend.
