Legendary Hall of Fame Manager Sparky Anderson passed away yesterday. Sparkys' Tigers teams went 100-89 over 17 seasons against the Angels. One of the few winning seasons against him was 1989 when the Angels went 11-1 vs the Tigers. Although the Angels did go 91-71 that season, the Tigers went 59-103, one of their worst, so not a lot of credit to the Angels. I'm glad that we can call him one of our own as Sparky was a TV analyst for one season with the Angels.
Sparky Anderson was a great manager, a colorful guy, and a fan favorite.
