From Detroit to Ann Arbor
Back in 1902, when the team was still in its infancy, the Tigers occasionally headed west, specifically to the University of Michigan's Ferry Field, best known as the site of Fielding Yost's Point-a-Minute offense and the 1935 record-breaking track heroics of an Ohio State sophomore named Jesse Owens.
The reason we know this? A newspaper clipping inside a scrapbook now housed at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. I came across the picture above while going through these and other archival documents at the hall's A. Bartlett Giamatti Research Center in the summer of 2010.
Although some of the vintage scrapbooks were donated by players or their families, many (such as this one) were put together by anonymous fans who loved the game and rabidly collected newspaper articles about their favorite teams.
