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 life – 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.

I was a youngster of 11 in Warren when this all took place — they are still after all these years my favorite team of all time. This terrific video harkens back to a time when the players talked more about each other than themselves, no big egos, they were kind to the press, and there was genuine youthful exuberance. They are acting like college players, all fresh and young, enjoying the moment, and i think this is GREAT! Thanks, 68 Tigers, for a lifetime of memories.
The video is shows the fans on the field I have been looking for this I’ll have to slow this video to see me-where did you get this?? its great
