“I was a kid in Detroit in the 50’s, and Al Kaline was my Mickey Mantle,” Alice wrote in the social media statement. “He was my hero. He was the absolute pride of Detroit. I’m not sentimental about much, including my own memorabilia, but I do have a small sports memorabilia collection – it is all Al Kaline.”
In the comments of the photo, many fans paid their tribute to legendary baseball player Al Kaline. They also mentioned how successful player he was.
A fan named Teresa said: “I’m sorry you lost your hero Alice. May he Rest In Peace.”
