Curtis Granderson came up through the Detroit Tigers organization, first making their team in 2004 and cementing himself as a starter in the Outfield two years later.  Granderson led the AL in Triples in 2007 and 2008, and he made his first All-Star Team in 2009, the year he had his first 30-year Home Run season.

Granderson was traded to the Yankees in 2019, and he played in Gotham for four years, with back-to-back 40 HR campaigns in 2011 and 2012.  An All-Star in both of those seasons, Granderson led the AL in RBIs in 2011 (119) and was fourth in MVP voting.

He would later play for the Mets, Dodgers, Blue Jays, Brewers, and Marlins, retiring with an even 1,800 Hits and 344 Home Runs.
