Al Kaline Speaker Profile
Al Kaline Biography
Known as Mr. Tiger, Al Kaline was born December 19, 1934 in Baltimore, Maryland. Kaline was active from 1953 to 1974 and spent his entire career with the Detroit Tigers, bypassing the minor league system and joining the team directly from Baltimore's Southern High School as an 18-year-old bonus baby signee, receiving $35,000 to sign with the Tigers. For most of his career, Kaline played in the outfield, mainly as a right fielder, where he was known for his strong throwing arm. He once threw out two baserunners at home in the same inning. Near the end of his career, he also played as first baseman and, in his last season, was the Tigers' designated hitter. Kaline wore the #6 for his entire major league playing career.
Kaline finished his career with 3,007 hits (25th on the all-time list) and 399 home runs (a Tigers record and 43rd on the all-time list). He batted over .300 nine times in his career to finish with a lifetime batting average of .297 and while never considered a true power hitter, Kaline did hit 25 or more home runs seven times in his career. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1980, his first year of eligibility, and subsequently honored by the Tigers as the first of their players to have his uniform number (6) retired.
