There are few moments in major league history as celebrated as the 1968 World Series during which the Detroit Tigers beat the St. Louis Cardinals in a dramatic seven games. Even more than the victory itself, it’s the team’s journey to the championship that might be the most thrilling, which is why former Tigers’ pitcher Mickey Lolich teamed up with award-winning sportswriter Tom Gage to tell the story. Joy in Tigertown (2018) dives into what led to the Tigers victory against the state of the city and calls on former players to reflect on this turning point in Tigers’ history. Lolich will be joined by Gage to sign copies of the book, and authors Michael Betzold, John Davids, Bill Dow, and Frank Rashid will also be on hand to sign copies of Tiger Stadium Essays and Memories of Detroit’s Historic Ballpark, 1912-2009.
