Tigers Winter Caravan Stops at Crystal Mountain

THOMPSONVILLE – The Detroit Tigers 2018 winter caravan made a stop at Crystal Mountain Resort Friday morning.

Among the current and past Tigers on hand was Detroit great and 2018 National Baseball Hall of Fame inductee Alan Trammell. The former shortstop and manager met with northern Michigan fans and shared insights on the upcoming season. Trammell also shared his thoughts on double-play partner Lou Whitaker’s omission from the Hall of Fame ballot.

“I might be a little biased. I don’t care. I have my own opinion,” Trammell said. “The fact that he’s not on the ballot is a shame. I’m hoping that now, once myself and Jack are in, that we may be able to influence, at least a little bit, and at some point get him on the ballot, because that’s the start. But, he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.”
