My all-time favorite player in any sport. I named a dog Kaline.

I survived four years of Carter. I imagine I can survive one year of Biden and three years of Harris.

God, he was great. What an arm, and such a good outfielder. This has to be one of my earliest memories...I was 6, but can remember watching the game with my dad so clearly....

I remember the headline and photo as if it was yesterday; I was also six at the time. I didn't know what a broken collarbone meant in the grand scheme of things, but I knew it wasn't good. That clutch single to right-field in Game 5 of the '68 World Series, along with Horton's throw to Freehan cutting down Lou Brock at the plate, may have been the turning point of the series. (sigh) One of Detroit's and baseball's all-time greats!

RIP
