A class act and a great role model for players today. He also was a a GREAT player!
He is my favorite Tiger of all time.

No. Harvey Keunn was traded to Cleveland for Rocky Colavito.
Al Kaline went straight from High School to the Tigers ML lineup. He was drafted and debuted in 1953 and then for the next consecutive 67 years until his death in 2020 worked for the Tigers, never having another employer.
what position did kaline end up playing when calavito joined tigers
Al Kaline was the greatest ball player to come out of the Baltimore area besides Babe Ruth and Cal Ripken. Always great to watch when I was younger. Actually played on the field that he did when he played HS ball in Baltimore.
I met him in Cooperstown!
