As a tribute to George Kell, FOX Sports Detroit will rerun its 2005 special, "FSN Basement: All-Star Edition," which featured interviews with Kell and his long-time broadcast partner, Al Kaline.
The special will be shown tonight at 7:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. EST, and run again Sunday at 12:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Set your DVRs accordingly.
Here are some more details from the Tigers' official MLBlog.
Other tributes to Kell:
● DesigNate Robertson has an impressive anecdote from Kell's career.
(I always loved the way he pronounced Robin Yount's name as "yaunt.")
● Newsday's Ken Davidoff remembers how much Kell meant to him when he was a student at the University of Michigan.
● As Kell played for the Red Sox at one point, the Boston Globe remembers him.
● Even Drew Sharp had something nice to say, which shows just how beloved a figure Kell was in Detroit sports.
