Here's what it says on the Hall of Fame plaque for former Detroit Tigers shortstop Alan Trammell:
ALAN STUART TRAMMELL
Detroit, AL, 1977-96
Catalyst for dominant Tigers teams of the 1980s who showcased all-around excellence for two decades at shortstop. Six-time All-Star and winner of four Gold Glove awards. Hit .300-or-better in seven seasons. Developed power later in career to step into clean-up slot, a rarity for middle infielders of his era. Upon retirement, ranked among top 10 shortstops all-time in hits, doubles and home runs, as well as defensive games and fielding percentage. Named Most Valuable Player of the 1984 World Series after batting .450 with two homers and six RBI in Detroit's five-game victory over San Diego.
