Joy In Tigertown

Mon, 11/26/2018 - 12:32am

The 1968 World Series remains one of the most iconic in major league history. Featuring Bob Gibson in MVP form, Al Kaline, and Mickey Lolich, it was baseball at its best.

Former Detroit Tigers pitcher Mickey Lolich and journalist Tom Gage discuss this historic series as well as their book  "Joy in Tigertown: A Determined Team, a Resilient City, and our Magical Run to the 1968 World Series."

Told with the vibrant first-hand perspective of Lolich himself and the expertise of award-winning Detroit journalist Tom Gage, this is the remarkable saga of that 1968 season which culminated in Tigers glory.
