“The Mechanical Man”, Charlie Gehringer was as good a baseball player as he was quiet, and considering he was known for not talking much, you can imagine that he was a pretty good baseball player!
Considered one of the best Second Baseman of all-time, Gehringer led the Detroit Tigers to their first World Series Championship in 1935 and two years later he was named the MVP an award he finished in the top ten in voting the four years previous.  

Elected to the Hall of Fame in 1949, Gehringer retired with a slick Slash Line of .320/.404/.480 and would twice lead the American League in Hits.  A nicer Detroit Tiger would be impossible to find and who better than Charlie Gehringer to be the man to bring Detroit their first championship?
