Legend of Darnell Coles

Sweet, Bruce Fields, Rated Rookie card!!! Oh, wait, that's Darnell Coles....

Fields kid, Daniel is moving up the ranks in the Tigers system....Bruce (A Lansing native) has been a hitting coach for many teams, including Detroit, now with Cleveland.

Which team had the first infield to hit for 20 HRs?  The 1986 Detroit Tigers, of course, well name them....

First Base --- Darrell Evans 29 HRS

Second Base --- Lou Whitaker --- 20 HRs

Shortstop --- Alan Trammell --- 21 HRs

Third ---  Freakin' Darnell Coles --- 20 HRs
straight out of Dwight Eisenhower HS

Coles played for 11 teams in his career bouncing between Detroit and Seattle on three separate occasions.

If only for a trivia question, he is a legend and he kept it Hot on the Corner, pat.

  1. I remember when Darnell made his first trip to Seattle from AAA Salt Lake and he was thought to be the next great player. We was up and down, and back and forth to detroit and Seattle. I really thought he would be a more solid player.
