George Kell passed away on Tuesday morning in his sleep at his home in Swifton, Arkansas.
The hall-of-famer sported a career .306 average and was a ten-time All Star, including for all five of his full seasons he spent with the Tigers.
Kell, especially to younger generations, is best known for being one of the voices of the Tigers (along with Ernie Harwell). Kell's easy-going country drawl was thought to fit the game well.
Kell also was on hand to call both the Tigers' 1968 and 1984 world championships.
