As a kid I watched guys like Whitaker, Trammell, Tony, Cecil, Mickey, and so on. I vaguely recall the 1984 Champs, but in my world the legend lingers. Between a baseball crazed cousin, and a Dad that enjoyed all sports, I grew to be a fan. By 1991 I moved to Atlanta. The Braves went from worst to first that season. Although the Tigers were my first love (I wore my jersey pretty much every other day), the Braves came to be a love as well. On the playground I would pretend to be guys like Tettleton or Morris. To this day those memories always bring a smile.

Eventually I moved back north. As a kid in metro Detroit I played baseball nearly every day in the summer. Either in leagues or for fun. Today I live just west of the city, but work 10 blocks from Comerica. I still love the Tigers, and as a stat freak and observer of all things fan-related I really enjoy places like BYB. A place where Tigers fans can come together and laugh, cry, or discuss the things that have brought us to cherish the stripes.
