97.1 the Ticket’s Jamie and Stoney had an interesting debate this morning, wondering which athlete has been the most beloved in Detroit sports history:
Detroit Tigers fans have waited 17 years for Alan Trammell to make it into the Hall of Fame.
“I’m thrilled that both are getting in at the same time,” Jamie Samuelsen said, adding that no one would argue that Trammell is the best Detroit athlete of all time.
But is he the most beloved in history?
Co-host Mike “Stone” Stone answered: Alan Trammell and Steve Yzerman are the most beloved athletes he can remember seeing in Detroit.
He added that Trammell is special and so beloved, despite his lack of ability as manager, because people just don’t hold the manager years against him.
“Yzerman and Trammell are the two in my mind,” Stoney said.
Continued, and I’d argue that Steve Yzerman may be the most beloved Red Wing this side of Gordie Howe, but that’s just my opinion.
Who do you feel has been the most beloved Red Wings player?
