Alan Trammell, Baseball Hall of Fame, World Series MVP

Birthdate: February 21

Alan Trammell debuted with the Detroit Tigers in 1977 at 19 years of age; one year younger than his keystone base battery mate Lou Whittaker. In 1978 Whittaker won the American League Rookie of the Year Award in a landslide vote over Paul Molitor, Carney Lansford, Rich Gale, and Trammell. In the summer of 2018 Trammell will join Molitor in the Baseball Hall of Fame after being selected by the Veterans Committee.

Like most HOF inductees selected by the Veterans Committee, Trammell’s record is questioned as being HOF worthy. The only major award of his career was as MVP of the 1984 World Series in which the Tigers defeated the San Diego Padres in 5 games and Trammell went 9 for 20 with 6 RBI and 2 HR. He twice led the American League in Sacrifice Hits, but never in any other offensive or defensive category. To be certain, 6 All Star Game appearances, 4 Gold Gloves, and 3 Silver Slugger awards spread over a 20 year career are nothing to sneeze at. However, Trammell’s fate was to play Major League Baseball at the same time as fellow American League shortstops Cal Ripken and Robin Yount, both of whom were first-ballot HOF inductees with four American League MVP Awards between them and the standard by which all shortstops are measured.

Barry Larkin, Cincinnati Reds MVP and Hall of Fame

Barry Larkin was born and raised in Cincinnati and played ball at Archbishop Moeller High School. The Reds drafted him out of high school in 1982, but Larkin opted to play ball at the University of Michigan. Three years later the Reds made him the fourth overall pick and he played his entire career in the Reds organization. Being the hometown boy undoubtedly helped Larkin with the unenviable task of replacing another lifelong Reds legend, Davey Concepion.

Larkin was the National League MVP in 1995, a year in which he led the National League with 51 stolen bases and was caught stealing less than 9% of the time. It was the first of two consecutive years in which he scored the hat trick of winning a Gold Glove, a Silver Slugger, and making the National League All Star team. All told, Larkin played in 12 All Star Games, won 9 Silver Sluggers and 3 Gold Gloves. According to Baseball Reference, his offensive WAR in 1995 was second only to Craig Biggio in the National League, and he committed only 11 fielding errors, one more than Jose Vizcaino, among National League shortstops.

I personally collect Bob Gibson, Roberto Clemente, Tom Seaver, St. Louis Cardinals – especially from the 60’s, 1969 and 1986 New York Mets, and 1985 Kansas City Royals.
