Martinez provided these photos of the event, which took place at Detroit’s Wayne State University. He reports that both players were very knowledgeable and hands on with fans.

The timing of this Trammell sighting could not have been better, as he and another Tigers legend, Jack Morris, both finally got the call to Cooperstown, after being voted in by the new modern era Hall of Fame committee, who met at baseball’s winter meetings.

Trammell was a four-time gold glove winning shortstop that spent his entire 20-year MLB career with the Tigers. He was also a six-time All-Star and World Series MVP for the Tigers famous 1984 World Series winning team, which was the last time the franchise won a Fall Classic.

Trammell is easily one of the most popular players in Detroit baseball history.

Trammell, like a number of All-Star/Hall of Fame players in his or previous eras, was on one team his entire career, which is pretty much a thing of the past, these days.

Most baseball fans would agree that it was long overdue for the 59-year-old Trammell to gain entry into the Hall of Fame.
