Justin Verlander Biography

Starting pitcher for the Detroit Tigers, Justin Verlander was born February 20, 1983, in Manakin-Sabot, Virginia. He ended the 2005 season pitching for the Erie SeaWolves, the AA affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. He became the fifth starter in the Tigers rotation in 2006. Verlander, a 6'5", 200 pound right-hander, pitched for the Old Dominion University baseball team for three years. In 2003, he set a school single season record by recording 139 strikeouts; in 2004, he broke his own record and established a new Colonial Athletic Association record with 151 strikeouts. In 2006, he was named the American League Rookie of the Year. On June 12, 2007 he pitched a no-hitter, the first ever at Comerica Park against the Milwaukee Brewers, striking out 12 batters and walking four.

Verlander has drawn comparisons to former Tiger and Major Leaguer, Mark Fidrych. "The Bird," as he was called, pitched an excessive amount of innings (by today's standards) in his rookie season, after which his career was tragically cut short when he seriously injured his leg while goofing off during spring training prior to what was to have been his second MLB season, which in turn altered his mechanics and led to the rotator cuff injury that ended his career. Fidrych, during his rookie year, won 19 games, led the American League with a 2.34 ERA and finished first in the Rookie of the Year Award voting. The Tigers organization is taking extreme caution not to waste Verlander's arm and spoil his bright future.

An All-Star selection in 2007, Verlander is depended on as the pitcher of the future for the Detroit Tigers.
