Today in 1984, the Detroit Tigers defeated the California Angles to improve to 35 - 5. The best 40 game start ever. They were lead by this man.
The 1984 Tigers were a great team lead by Sparky Anderson. He was a great manager and was fantastic to his fans. I have a few TTM autographs from Mr. Anderson and I cherish those.
At the start of every season, I often wonder if any team will give this record a run. And every year since, it still stands. I think it is a great team record that should stand for many more years.
