DETROIT - Nobody respected the game of baseball more than Alan Trammell. In turn, no player has been respected by those in the game more than Trammell. Or "Tram" to his friends and fans. Now Tigers' fans can relive his Hall of Fame career with the second book in the Detroit Tigers Legends series: "Three: A Salute to Alan Trammell." This collection of stories, vignettes and photographs captures what Trammell meant - and still means - to the Tigers' franchise, his teammates, loyal fans and to the entire baseball world. Honoring the retirement of Trammell's uniform number after his induction into baseball's Hall of Fame, this will be a must-have Tigers collectible. "Three: A Salute to Alan Trammell" - written by Hall of Fame baseball writer Tom Gage - will feature more than 150 pages chronicling Tram's baseball career, including photos from his family's personal collection. Trammell's 20 seasons with the Tigers -19 of them with Lou Whitaker as his second-base partner - featured six All-Star appearances, four Gold Glove awards and three Silver Sluggers. As a career highlight, he was named the Most Valuable Player of the 1984 World Series for hitting .450. He also was thrilled to go out "the way I came in" - singling to center for both his first major-league hit in 1977 and his last in 1996. But it always started with defense for Tram. He was among the most dependable shortstops of all time. Currently serving as a special consultant to Tigers' general manager Al Avila, Trammell will have his number retired in a special ceremony on Aug. 26 at Comerica Park. Please Note: This book will not be available for shipping until August 26, 2018.
