Bill Freehan Should Be in the Hall of Fame – Motor City Bengals

From Motor City Bengals:

Detroit Tigers’ fans will watch as two of the team’s icons, Jack Morris and Alan Trammell, finally get inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on July 29. While it’s great to see two legends get their due, the mind always wanders to who else is being left out.

Lou Whitaker has been mentioned most often in this debate, not only due to his close connection with Alan Trammell but because he flat-out deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.

However, Whitaker is not the only Tigers’ player who should be in Cooperstown. Another tragic misstep by the BBWAA and the Veteran’s Committee has been the omission of Tigers catching legend Bill Freehan.
