Twilight Tigers: Steve Avery
Every Tuesday, I am taking a look at former stars that finished up their careers with the Tigers.
Steve Avery picked #3 overall in 1988, was a prominent member of the Atlanta Braves super rotation in the 1990s winning 18 games in 1991 and 1993, a native of Taylor, MI. Avery went to the Red Sox and Reds following Atlanta, spent two seasons out of baseball (2001-02)
The Braves would be my favorite team during the 1990s due to their success and local boys Avery and John Smoltz.
Came back to finish his career with the Tigers in 2003, going 2-0 with an ERA over 5 in 19 games.
We had this guy?
Keep it Hot on the Corner, pat.
