He was the second baseman in those great Tigers teams of the 1960s, including the 1968 World Series champs & the team that won 101 games in 1961.
McAuliffe played most of his career with Detroit. He broke with the Tigers in 1960 and put some great numbers at a time when second basemen did not hit with power: 197 HR & 696 RBI. His best power year was 1964 with 24 HR.
RIP Dick McAuliffe. He was really selected as # 53 in the top 100 Detroit Tigers.
