Easy trivia for Tiger fan....

[4]
Posted: Jul 19, 2017 9:17 PM
 

In the early 70's the Tigers recruited a local player to be the next star running back .... and he would have been had he not chosen to play another sport. A few years later he became the highest paid player in MLB and eventually became a HOFer. Most of you aren't old enough to remember this guy but he was special then, and still is.

Remember ........?

What size steak knives do you wear?

A great player and gentleman who won over the racist Boston fans with his superb play.

Still among my favorites.

Not sure he really won over the racist Red Sox fans. Only my opinion...

An attempt at humor... right?


Didn't that player have an Asian cousin?

My bad. I should have known that a post about something other than the gamecocks would bring out the real fans.

I am trying to remember the year.... but he came to a Clemson game in either 1976 or 77, and brought Fred Lynn with him. The thing was, they sat in the stands with everyone else. They were aprox. 5 rows above us, and both were very welcoming and friendly. I wish I could remember... getting old Tiger brethren lol!
