Detroit Tigers fans are getting anxious wondering who Al Avila will add to the 25-man roster. As other clubs are making moves and hiring new pitchers and fielders, the Tigers seems to be sitting still. To relieve some of the anxiety of waiting, why not offer a distraction like putting together a roster of the best Tigers from history? We, fans, may not know who is coming to the team, but we certainly know who has been on it.
This dream roster includes 25 of the best Tigers who have ever walked on the grass in Bennett Park, Navin Field, Briggs Field, Tiger Stadium, and Comerica Park. These men are household names to fans of all ages. Each man was selected because of his experience in his position. Some have played in World Series games, others should have and still have time to do so. Some grace the walls of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and some are commemorated on the outfield wall of Comerica Park. No matter who they are, they have contributed in a positive way to the Detroit Tigers organization. While many of these men were the best at their position for several years, each Tiger had at least one season that bested all the rest. Who would be on your dream 25-man Detriot Tigers roster?
