Tiger Trivia Challenge – Test Run

Alright, I need your help.  In order to have as few surprises as possible when I start my Tiger Trivia Challenge next Monday, I’m going to have a test run today so if you follow through with the instructions, I’d appreciate it.  This will also get you familiar with the format of the questions.  Anyway, here we go…..

Eight different Tigers have won 21 different American League batting titles.  In fact, for the Tigers first seven decades of the franchises existence, they had at least one player win a batting title in every decade.  That streak came to an end when no Tiger won the batting title in the 1970s, with the last winner being Norm Cash in 1961.

Only two Tigers have won multiple batting titles in their career as a Tiger.  Who are they?

Please send you answer to trivia@tigerblog.net.  Please include you answer as well as your favorite Detroit Tiger website/blog.  As a disclaimer, all trivia questions only include the Tigers as they’ve existed since 1901.  Any previous Detroit franchises are to be ignored with regard to these questions.


I got a few correct answers.  Ty Cobb and Harry Heilmann were the two Tigers to win multiple batting titles.  Thanks for your help with my test.

Cobb and Crawford

Sorry David. You got one (Cobb) but not the other. In fact, Crawford had the disadvantage of playing at the same time as both Cobb and Nap Lajoie. He finished second four times but never won a batting title.

And don’t forget, for your answer to count, you have to send it to the email address I listed in the email.
