Detroit Tigers Top 10 Batting Stat Leaders

detroit tigersRecently had read about the Mets All-Time Top 10 WAR leaders and through recent research over who should be in the Detroit Tigers Hall of Fame (vote here), I’ve decided to expand the top-10 to other categories as well. Some may surprise you, while others won’t….

As for WAR or averages, these guys can’t have played just a season or two in Detroit, I’ll include them at a minimum of 5 seasons.
