Top Tigers Countdown #50: Mark Fidrych

The Bird's career was cut short due to injuries, but he electrified the Tigers and their fans in his 1976 rookie season.

Super utility man Tony Phillips had five consecutive seasons with 4 WAR or more with the Tigers in the early 1990s.

Hall of Fame outfielder Goose Goslin spent four years in Detroit and drove in the decisive run in the 1935 World Series.

The Jack Morris of the early 1900s, Bill Donovan won 140 games for the Tigers in 11 seasons.

Manush's Tigers career ended shortly after Ty Cobb hung up his spikes, but a number of great years in St. Louis and Washington turned him into a Hall of Famer down the road.

Top Tigers Countdown #37: Donie Bush

Donie Bush was the shortstop that you are praying Jose Iglesias turns into.

Top Tigers Countdown #36: Travis Fryman
