Charlie Gehringer (1924-1942)

Unlike the three previous names, Gehringer played his entire career with the Tigers. He is still second in hits, third in runs scored and fourth in RBI in Detroit Tigers history.

His best season came in 1937 where he hit .371 with 55 extra-base hits and 96 RBI, winning the AL MVP award.

Gehringer, however, is remembered most for his heroics in the 1935 World Series. He hit .375 with three doubles and four RBI to help the Tigers win their first World Series.

He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1949.
