RIP Dick McAuliffe (1939-2016)

We learned that Dick McAuliffe passed away.   

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.
