Career highlights and awards
Notable achievements

Alan Stuart Trammell (born February 21, 1958 in Garden Grove, California) was an American baseball shortstop of the Detroit Tigers from 1977 to 1996. Trammell, nicknamed "Tram", had a successful playing career with the Tigers, highlighted by a World Series championship in 1984 and an American League East division championship in 1987. One of the best defensive shortstops of the 1980s, Trammell had good range, soft hands and was smooth turning the double play. Although his arm was not overpowering, he had a quick release and made accurate throws. Trammell's solid, steady defense perfectly complemented the play of his double play partner, Lou Whitaker, with whom Trammell formed the most enduring keystone-combination in Major League Baseball history. He would later serve as the team's manager from 2003 through 2005. He currently is the bench coach for the Chicago Cubs.

Playing career

Early years

While playing for the Tigers' farm team in Montgomery of the Southern League, Alan Trammell played his first game with teammate Lou Whitaker before the two infielders were promoted, making their major league debut at Fenway Park together, during the second game of a double-header on September 9, 1977, the first of nineteen seasons together.

The '84 season

Trammell, along with his Tiger teammates, enjoyed a dream season in 1984. Despite a season-long battle with tendonitis in his shoulder, which caused him to miss 43 regular season games, he finished fifth in AL batting race with .314 and ranked eighth in on base percentage. In the 1984 American League Championship Series against the Kansas City Royals, Trammell hit .364 with one home run and three RBI. Finally, in the World Series, he was 9-for-20 against the San Diego Padres, including pair of two-run home runs that accounted for all of Tigers' runs in a Game 4 Detroit victory.

Glory Years 1985 to 1988

In 1985, after two consecutive years not lower than .314, Trammell was hampered by injuries, and posted only a .258 batting average. He underwent postseason surgery on left knee and right shoulder. The following season, he returned with new energy. He became only second player in Detroit history to hit 20 homers and steal 20 bases in a season, Kirk Gibson being the other. Trammell also set a career-high with 75 RBI.

In 1987, asked by manager Sparky Anderson to bat cleanup, Trammell responded with the best season of his career. In September, he batted .416 with six homers and 17 RBI, putting together an 18-game hitting streak in which he hit a .457, helping his team to win the AL East division by two games on the last day of the season. He became the first Tiger to collect 200 hits and 100 RBI in the same season since Al Kaline did it in 1955. Beside this, he appeared amongst the league leaders in most AL offensive categories: third in batting average (.343), tenth in RBI (105), third in hits (205), tied for fifth in runs (109), fourth in total bases (329), fifth in on base percentage (.402), eighth in slugging average (.551), and tied for fifth in game-winning RBI (16). Despite his efforts, Trammell finished second to Toronto's George Bell in the MVP voting (332-311), which is considered by many one of the most controversial decisions in award history.

Later years, injuries and retirement

The following years, Trammell suffered a long string of injuries that slowed his production both at bat and on the field. In 1991, he was limited to 101 games because of knee and ankle injuries. It was even worse in 1992. He got into only 29 games before breaking his right ankle, losing the rest of the season. His days as a regular shortstop for Detroit were close to being over. After two sub-par seasons, he retired in 1996.

Hall of Fame eligibility

Managerial career

Alan Trammell was named the manager of a long-struggling Tigers team on October 9, 2002. The team lost a AL-record 119 games in his first season in 2003, before improving to 72-90 in 2004, the biggest turnaround in the AL since Baltimore's 33-game improvement from 1988 to 1989. In the 2005 season, however, the team regressed slightly, posting a record of 71-91.

On October 3, 2005, the Detroit Tigers released Trammell after three seasons in which the organization failed to post a winning record. Trammell was replaced by Jim Leyland on October 4, 2005. Leyland led Detroit to a 24-game improvement in the regular season, an AL pennant and a World Series appearance in 2006. While some critics believe that Trammell's stint as Tiger's manager tainted his baseball legacy, others contend that he was a rookie manager put in charge of a team that was severely lacking in talent, and believe his managerial stint played an integral role in re-instilling professionalism and pride throughout the Detroit organization.

In October, 2006, Trammell returned to Comerica Park for the first time since his firing to participate, along with Sparky Anderson, in pregame festivities prior to Game 2 of the World Series. Trammell was showered with a lengthy standing ovation from Detroit baseball fans upon taking the field.


After being replaced by Leyland, Trammell turned down an offer to stay with the Tigers as a special assistant, instead opting to sit out 2006. In October 2006, he agreed to join the Chicago Cubs as a bench coach for the 2007 season, a possible precursor to an eventual return to managing a major league club.

Alan Trammell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (988 words)
Alan Stuart Trammell (born February 21, 1958 in Garden Grove, California) was an American baseball shortstop of the Detroit Tigers from 1977 to 1996.
Trammell, commonly called "Tram", had a successful playing career with the Tigers, highlighted by a World Series championship in 1984 and an American League East division championship in 1987.
Despite his efforts, Trammell finished second to Toronto's George Bell in the MVP voting (332-311), which is considered by many one of the most controversial decisions in award history.
