Baseball had established itself as a

The Tigers have been fortunate since
then. During the 1930s, when the City
of Detroit went broke and had one of
the worst unemployment problems in
the nation, the Tigers put together the
excellent Cochrane-Gehringer-Greenberg

in 1934 and 1935. These teams clearly

nearly six minutes.
