Tigers set to open season in K.C.

By DOUGLAS B. LEVY
Spring training is now over. The
snows in Kansas City at least, has
melted. The Tigers will finally play
their twice-delayed season-opener
tonight at 8:30 against the Royals.
Sparky Anderson has completed his
third spring exhibition season as
manager of the Tigers and he says that
this is his best Detroit team to date. In
the past, he has promised that by 1982
the Tigers would be looking to win the
American League East.
WHETHER OR not Sparky can lead
his team to a division crown remains to
be seen, but either way, this year's
team has a solid line-up.
The infield for Detroit should be very
consistent. Defensively, perhaps no
American League East team is
stronger up the middle. Last Season,
second baseman Lou Whitaker and
Golden Glove shortstop Alan.Trammel
led the league in double plays. Rick
Leach won the first base job because of
his heavy hitting this spring but defen-
sively he is the surest-handed first
baseman that the Tigers have. Tom
'Brookens is secure at third bas, where
he looks to have a fine season,'barring
injuries.
Offensively, Trammell (.258 last
season) and Whitaker (.263) will bat in
the eighth and ninth spots where they
figure to be on base a lot for the top of
the batting order.,
OVER THE winter, Enos Cabell was
acquired from the San Francisco Gian-
ts. Cabell, a ten-year veteran, has a .273
lifetime batting average. He can play
first base, third base, and the uutfield
and should be an asset to the team.
Veteran Richie Hebner can also fill in
at first and third.
In right field the Tigers have
acquired Chet Lemon from the Chicago

White Sox. Last season Lemon batted
.302 with nine home runs, and 50 runs
batted in. He is generally recognized as
a solid ballplayer offensively and
defensively.
Kirk Gibson (.328, 9, 40) is being
billed as the game's next superstar. If
the centerfielder stays at the pace he
established at the end of last season, he
just may very well be the next Mickey
Mantle.
ANOTHER Tiger trade has put
another former San Francisco Giant in
Detroit. Larry Herndon (.288, 5, 41) is
the new Tiger left fielder. Herndon can
add only positive qualities: experience,
ability, and attitude.
In reserve is speedster Ed Miller,
recently acquired from Atlanta, and
Lynn Jones, a defensive replacement.
On both offense and defense, the Tigers
have assembled a productive outfield
unit.
The Tigers are also strong where all
serious contenders must have depth, at
catcher. Lance Parrish (.244, 10, 46) is
the starter, although Anderson has said
that he would like to see Bill Fahey cat-
ch 30 or 40 games. John Wockenfuss
provides another skilled receiver.
PITCHING IS the name of the game,
and the Tiger staff includes some
potential big winners. The stopper for
Detroit is Jack Morris (14-7, 3.05 era).
The second and third starters are Dan
Petry (10-9, 3.00) and Milt Wilcox (12-9,
3.04). Dave Rozema, who was the most
effective pitcher this spring, has won
the fourth starting position.
In his days as manager of the Cincin-
nati Reds, Anderson was known as
"Captain Hook." With the Tigers this
season, Anderson is not blessed with a
stopper out of the bullpen. Kevin
Saucier (4-2, 1.65, 13 saves) is the most
effective short reliever. Elias Sosa,
recently acquired from the Montreal

Expos, and Aurelio Lopez, recovering
from an injury, are two other short
relievers.
The long relievers will be Pat Under-
wood, Dave Tobik, and rookie Larry
Pashnick.
In the past, Anderson has said that if
he gets 55 wins from Morris, Petry and
Wilcox, the Tigers would win the
division. Fifty-five wins is a tall order,
but a possibility.
Tiger Tales: Chet Lemon who rein-
jured the pulled muscle in his rib-cage
will miss opening day. His replacement
will be Ed Miller.. . Kevin Saucier suf-
fered a bruised pitching hand when
struck by a Dave Stapleton line drive in
the seventh inning of the Tiger 12-5 win
over the Red Sox.
