The baseball game has a lost legend now. The sudden demise of Al Kaline made the fans mourn at this loss. After a series of reports, an official statement has come that he was dead due to a heart stroke. It is indeed heartbreaking news for many of his admirers.
His never-ending glory :
Right after his high school in Baltimore, he joined Tigers. His major league debut was in the year 1953. From then it is a history in the making. Just after 2 years in 1955, he won the American League title.
He even became the youngest player to get that award. In the AL MVP votings, he stood next to Yogi Berra on second. He worked part-time in the offseason like all. He worked as a salesman in Baltimore sporting goods store. He was so terrible at that job. He claimed himself this and further stated that he used to practice his swing down the basement all the time.
He is the first tiger to get his number six retired. He created that sort of influence with his game. He elected for Hall of Fame in 1980. After his career as a pinch hitter, he joined the Tigers’ broadcasting team in 1974. Till 2002 he works for them.
