RIP George Kell

The Detroit Free Press has just reported that Tiger great George Kell has died at age 86.

The Hall of Fame Third Baseman and Tiger great will surely be missed, and I personally remember him as a broadcasting parter with Al Kaline towards the end of his career. Look forward to many glowing articles recollecting the life and times of this All-Time Tiger legend.

  1. Is the black backdrop your version of flying a flag at half mast? If so, well played.

  2. It is indeed--A small show of respect for a great ballplayer
