Kaline broke with the Detroit Tigers in 1953.
In 1955, he won the AL batting title, the youngest champion ever at age 20.
Kaline played right field for the next two decades and finished in the top 3 of AL batting leaders five more times. He also hit 399 HR and won 10 Gold Gloves.
In 1974, he retired with 3,008 hits and was inducted to the Hall of Fame in 1980.
One of my all time favorites. I saw him play several times.
