Poll: Who's Your 'Unsung' Detroit Tiger?
Everyone knows the stars, but the baseball world is now getting a glimpse of those other Tigers whose contributions continue to make a difference this season.
Anybody paying attention to these Detroit Tigers knows ace Justin Verlander and slugger Miguel Cabrera are having MVP-caliber seasons, and are the best players on the roster.
But every successful baseball team needs those "other" guys to step up, and a manager that can put them in the right spot at the right time. Several unheralded players had key roles in last night's 5-4 victory in Game 3 of the American League Divisional Series that put the New York Yankees on the brink of elimination, including Don Kelly and Delmon Young, whose tie-breaking homer is being called pivotal in this story from The Detroit News.
