Today in Michigan History: Sibling Rivalry Tigers Style

Today in 1973, Detroit Tigers pitcher Jim Perry started against the Indians in Cleveland. Except that Cleveland's starter was his brother, Gaylord Perry. I gotta be honest guys, I've never known a Gaylord to not get in the way.

This was the first time in American League history that brothers started against each.  However, this was not the first time that athletes in the 1970s looked like they were in their 50s.
