Detroit Tiger rookie phenom Mark “The Bird” Fidrych died yesterday in an accident. There’s lots more (including a great interview) at Remembering Mark “The Bird” Fidrych on Absolute Michigan.

Samara took this photo at a Red Sox/Tigers game in Boston. It’s part of her baseball miscellany set (slideshow). She also wrote RIP, Mark ‘the Bird’ Fidrych which you should read if at all possible.
