Sneak inside ’68 Tigers pennant-clinching locker room through this rare video

Over the years, I have seen bits and pieces of the interviews conducted by George Kell inside the Tiger Stadium clubhouse immediately following the Detroit Tigers 1968 pennant-clincher – but I have never seen the broadcast in its entirety. Until now.

This video post is really incredible. It will transport you back in time as the young faces of the ’68 players come back to lifeĀ - including Denny Mclain, Mickey Lolich, Al Kaline, Dick McAuliffe, Mickey Stanley, Willie Horton, Don Wert, Jim Northrup, Eddie Mathews, and many more. This is truly one of the greatest moments in Tiger history – and it is captured in full color and sound.

Be sure to scroll down to access all three parts of the video to see it in its entirety.
