Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present our pre-2022 revision of our top 50 Detroit Tigers.
As for all of our top 50 players in baseball we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the National/American League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
The Tigers are coming off another sub-.500 season, and with a team over a century old, it is hard for any new additions to emerge.
It did not happen, and as of this writing, there is only one active Tiger in the top 50.
As always, we present the top five, which are:
1. Ty Cobb
2. Al Kaline
You can find the entire list here.
The active Tiger on this list is Miguel Cabrera, who at #6 did not make the top five.
We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
