Happy Birthday Alan Trammell!!!
Alan Trammell turns 53 years old today.
A very accomplished and undervalued player during his career and afterwards, there is not much that Alan Trammell did not accomplish during his playing days as a member of the Detroit Tigers.
A solid defender, Trammell was part of one of the most successful and longest running double-play tandems with Lou Whitaker. He won 4 Gold Glove awards due to his performance at shortstop.
And way before shortstop became an offensive player’s position, Trammell put up some nice numbers. His career batting average of .285 is coupled with 2,365 hits, 1,231 runs scored, 185 homers, and 236 stolen bases.
Trammell is a 6-time All-star, 3-time Silver Slugger winner, and was the MVP of the 1984 World Series.
Happy Birthday Mr. Trammell!!!
