When I think of the Tigers, I think of Hank Greenberg, Mickey Cochrane, and Al Kaline...

Lou Brock, who earned an academic scholarship to Southern University

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/06/sports/baseball/lou-brock-dead.html


Quote
For all his natural speed, Brock was also a student of baseball and an innovator in pursuing the art of stealing bases, using technology to “synchronize your movement with the pitcher’s movement.” Late in the ’64 season, he obtained a movie camera and began filming pitchers as they took their set position, threw to first base and threw to the plate, hoping to discover tendencies that might give him an edge.

Brock’s ingenuity wasn’t appreciated by at least one pitcher, as David Halberstam related in his book “October 1964”:

“One day he was filming Don Drysdale, as tough a pitcher as existed in the league.

“‘What the hell are you doing with that camera, Brock?’

“‘Just taking home movies,’ said Brock.

“‘I don’t want to be in your goddamn movies, Brock,’ Drysdale said, and threw at him the next time he was up.”

With Tom Seaver's passing, The cornfield is getting a few more quality players.
