Looked up his stats on Wikipedia and this is what I found:
Career stats: .297 lifetime average, 3,007 hits, 399 homers.
Teams: Detroit Tigers 1953-1974.
Career highlights: 15x All-Star (1955-67, 1971, 1974), 1968 World Series champ, 10x gold glove winner (1957-59, 1961-67), 1973 Roberto Clemente Award (sportsmanship, community team player), 1968 Lou Gehrig Award (character and integrity), 1969 Hutch Award (competitiveness).
Not bad for a guy who you rarely hear mentioned as one of the game's greatest.
What would we be saying of Kaline if he were a Yankee or Dodger?
