Probably the player most instrumental in me becoming a Detroit fan was Mark 'The Bird' Fidrych. I was 11 years old during his rookie season so I always look at how he did in any of my long term sims.

His career in this sim last slightly longer as he did not get hurt in his second year but it also lacked the dramatic rookie season of real life when he went 19-9 and won the American League rookie of the year. Sim Mark Fidrych was merely a average mid-to-bottom of the rotation starter for 3 seasons with the Tigers before recalculate eroded his skills and sent him to the minors to finish his career except for a brief two-inning stint with Pittsburgh a decade afer his Detroit days.
