The Newark Eagles select RF Al Kaline



"Mr. Tiger" was a career .297/.376/.480, with 3,007 hits, 399 home runs, and 1583 RBI. He made 15 all-star games in his 22 year career, and is generally considered to be one of the greatest defensive outfielders in history winning 10 gold gloves. In 1980 he was elected to the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility.

Kaline's career WAR of 87.4 ranks 30th all-time among hitters -- unbelievable value for the 87th pick of the draft. There are a few players I really want left on the board, but I just couldn't let him slide.

The Bronx Bombers are on the clock.
