World Series

Only World Series champions without Hall of Famers

From 1903-1989, every World Series winning team except two have boasted at least one future Hall of Famer on their roster. In most of the cases, the winning team has had more than one player who have gone on to be immortalized in Cooperstown.

On October 2, 1935, J. Edgar Hoover, America’s wildly famous FBI agent, was in the stands at Navin Field for the start of the World Series. At the end, it was another “G-Man” who made healdines, as Goose Goslin’s single drove in the game-winning run in the ninth inning of Game Six, giving the Tigers their first championship.
