The sour taste sure didn't last long for Sweet Lou.
Less than two weeks after he again was passed over for induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame, the Tigers informed him they would ditch team protocol and retire his No. 1 anyway. The ceremony will take place Aug. 29.
The Red Wings sure seem to be avoiding hanging #91 from the rafters. A member of the Hockey Hall of Fame deserves better.
