Our speakers on October 23rd will be Mickey Lolich and Tom Gage – Don’t miss it!
Michael Lolich was a pitcher for the Tigers from 1962 to 1979. He is best known for his performance in the 1968 World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals when he earned three complete-game victories, including a win over Bob Gibson in the climactic Game 7.
Tom Gage worked for The Detroit News as the Detroit Tigers beat writer from 1979 to 2015. Gage was awarded the J. G. Taylor Spink Award in 2015. Gage spent 39 years on the sports staff at The Detroit News, and 36 years as the Detroit Tigers beat writer, until retiring from the paper in March 2015, after being reassigned from the beat a month prior.
Lolich and Gage will discuss their new book: Joy in Tigertown: A Determined Team, a Resilient City, and our Magical Run to the 1968 World Series
