With voting closed for the 1960-Present Detroit Tigers, we only had 4 Hall of Famers (tough crowd!) make the required 75% of the vote.  As you can imagine, unanimous selections were Alan Trammell and Lou Whitaker.  Our 3rd and 4th Tiger Hall of Famers from the vote was came in at 89% of the vote and are Mickey Lolich and Jack Morris.

Noticeably missing is Bill Freehan who missed the required 75% by 1 vote.  That serves him right though, after dropping Siena Heights University from their annual schedule after his Michigan baseball team lost to Siena 5-3 in 1996. 🙂

Trammell, Whitaker, Lolich, and Jack Morris join Harvey Kuenn, Rudy York, Schoolboy Rowe, and Virgil Trucks from the Pre-60’s vote

These players would also be accompanied by existing Tiger Hall of Fame members, Ty Cobb, Sam Crawford, Charlie Gehringer, Hank Greenberg, Harry Heilmann, Al Kaline, Jim Bunning, and Hal Newhouser.
