Hall of Famer - Alan Trammell

Alan Trammel

For 20 seasons, Alan Trammell was the face of the Detroit Tigers.

In 1980, Trammell earned his first All-Star selection, batted .300 for the first time and won his first of four Gold Glove Awards. In 1983, Trammell hit .319 with 14 homers, 66 RBI and 30 stolen bases and was awarded the Comeback Player of the Year in the American League following two straight years where he hit .258.

In 1984, led by Trammell’s stellar performance at the plate with an exceptional batting average of .314 on the season, the Tigers went 104-58 to win the AL pennant and the World Series. Going 9-for-20 with two homers and six RBI, Trammell was named World Series MVP.

Trammell retired following the 1996 season finishing his Hall of Fame career with six All-Star Game selections, three Silver Slugger Awards and four Gold Glove Awards. He batted over .300 seven times, finishing with a .285 batting average, 185 home runs, 1,003 RBI, 412 doubles and 2,365 hits. Three times he finished in the top 10 in MVP voting. 

And 22 years later, on July 29, 2018, Alan Trammell’s historic career came full circle when he was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. 

Following his playing career, Trammell managed the Tigers from 2003-2005 and currently works in the Tigers’ front office as a Special Assistant to the General Manager.
