What a great player! Never played in the minors. I was at a game at Yankee Stadium that the Tigers won. On the last play of the game, Kaline ran in, dove, and got the ball flipping over and breaking his collarbone. He layt on the field until they brought out a stretcher to carry him off. All the fans (This was in Yankee Stadium) stayed and stood until they carried him off and applauded.
