A short bio from the Helmar “This Great Game” card back: 18-year old Mr. Kaline was wearing his prom suit at his parents’ kitchen table when he put his name on his first contract with the Detroit Tigers. Two years later, Al was a batting champion, the youngest in major league history. The winter before capturing the batting crown, Kaline heeded the advice of Ted Williams and squeezed a rubber ball to strengthen his wrists. Teddy Ballgame picks Al as “the most complete righthanded batter in the league,” and if anyone knows, it’s Williams.
