1993 Studio Lou Whitaker

Hobby is watching classic movies: Nice, you don’t see many ballplayers appreciating older culture.

Favorite sports announcer is Dick Vitale: I guess he likes college basketball.

Favorite player as a kid was Joe Morgan: Morgan was the best second baseman of the 1970s; Whitaker was probably the best of the 1980s.

Where he is now: Works as a special spring training instructor for the Tigers.


  1. Sweet Lou was great and should be in HOF this year with Trammell. Only Charlie Gehringer was a better Tigers 2nd Baseman that Whitaker.

  2. Even though I'm a die hard Cubs fan, I could definitely see the argument that Sweet Lou was a better 2nd baseman on the 80s than Ryno. And yet it seems he's almost forgotten now.
