Mickey Tettleton

Mickey TettletonTettleton was a master at the “three true outcomes” — strikeout, walk, and home run. He was a switch-hitting power hitter who had his best seasons for the Detroit Tigers but also played well for the Baltimore Orioles, Texas Rangers, and Oakland A’s.

With the Tigers in the early 1990s, Tettleton was in a fearsome lineup with power hitters Cecil Fielder, Rob Deer, Kirk Gibson, Alan Trammell, Lou Whitaker, and table-setter Tony Phillips.
