Sweet!! Thanks, D-Day.

I was lucky enough to have been at that game, courtesy of my Dad.
Sad to say, I was at an age when girls, and hanging out with my neighborhood friends, were dominating my thoughts. It was great to see those players (if one looks at that video, one should be astonished to notice how many major, true icons of the game were in attendance... young Reggie, middle Yaz, older Killebrew,) but the truth is that I was a bit too young & distractipated to fully appreciate it.
Although, a ball crashing through one of the light-towers is kinda hard to not appreciate.

I was at that game too. Right field lower grandstands. I remember seeing Reggie hit his home run, but never saw it go out until the TV replay. I was brought there via my Dad, as well. That, and a game of the World Series in 1968 in the upper deck bleachers.

SI ranked the top 75 Hall of Famers. The Tigers ...

5. Ty Cobb, CF (151.0/69.0/110.0)

Batting average isn't everything, but Cobb won 12 AL batting titles in 13 years (1907-19) while hitting a combined .377/.441/.527 en route to a 189 OPS+. His record hit total (4,191 upon his retirement in 1928 but since revised downward by two) stood until 1985, when Pete Rose passed it.

42. Al Kaline, RF (92.7/48.9/70.8 )

Though he never quite matched his incredible age-20 season (.340/.421/.546 with a batting title, 27 homers and 8.2 WAR in 1955), Kaline enjoyed a stellar 22-year career (1953-74) with the Tigers. He earned All-Star honors 15 times, won 10 Gold Gloves (with +152 defense), ranked second or third in the league in WAR seven times and finished with 3,007 hits and 399 homers.

49. Charlie Gehringer, 2B (80.6/50.5/65.6)

Nicknamed "The Mechanical Man" for both his durability and flat demeanor, Gehringer helped the Tigers win three pennants and made six All-Star teams during a 19-year career (1924-42). A career .320/.404/.480 hitter, he racked up at least 200 hits in a season seven times and won his lone batting title and MVP award at age 34, in 1937.

63. Harry Heilmann, RF (72.2/47.2/59.7)

A protégé of teammate Ty Cobb, Heilmann hit .342/.410/.520 in a 16-year career spent mostly with the Tigers. During a seven-year span (1921-1927) amid a particularly hitter-friendly era, he won four batting titles with averages of .393 or above while ranking among the AL's top five in WAR each year.

Oakland traded Cespedes to Boston for Lester and Jonny Gomes, giving the A's a rotation of Kazmir, Chavez, Gray, Samardzija and Lester.

Your move, Dave Dombrowski.

Rangers skipper Washington resigns position
Bench coach Bogar appointed interim manager for remainder of season

ARLINGTON -- The Texas Rangers announced Friday that Ron Washington has resigned as manager of the Texas Rangers, effective immediately.

Rangers president of baseball operations and general manager Jon Daniels issued the following statement: "Ron Washington informed us today that he has chosen to resign as Rangers manager in order to turn his full attention to addressing an off-the-field personal matter. Out of respect for Ron's privacy, the Rangers will leave any comment on the details to him.
"While we are disappointed, we accept Ron's decision and are grateful for his many contributions to the Rangers organization over the last eight years. This has certainly been a difficult season for our major league club in terms of on-field performance, but we were looking forward to moving ahead with Ron as our manager in 2015.
"Ron has guided the Rangers franchise to more victories than any manager in club history, including four straight 90-win seasons, three playoff appearances, and back-to-back American League championships. He has left his mark as a teacher, motivator, and leader on this organization. We wish Ron the best as he deals with this matter."
Bench coach Tim Bogar has been appointed interim manager for the remainder of the 2014 season. Bogar, who has spent the past 11 seasons as a Major League coach and Minor League manager, is in his first season on the Texas staff.
Washington was appointed the Rangers' 17th full-time manager on Nov. 6, 2006. His record at the helm is 664-611, and he is the franchise's all-time leader in regular-season wins and games managed (1,275). He also compiled an 18-16 record over postseason appearances in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Texas won the American League pennant in 2010 and 2011.

An Indians fan (they apparently exist) called the team pathetic after last night's loss and Jason Kipnis replied and called the fellow a "fucking idiot."

Asked about it this morning, Francona said he agreed with everything in the tweet but the "fuck."

Asked if he will discipline Kipnis, Francona replied: "Well, I'm the last guy on earth to tell someone not to say 'fuck.'"
