Baseball Players who Played for Tigers and Orioles

There is a good chance that if you’ve found this page then you’re playing the Immaculate Grid.

That also means that today’s grid has asked for players that have played for both the Detroit Tigers and the Baltimore Orioles.

And, it also means that you’re probably stuck on this particular box and you’re looking for a little help. Sound about right so far?

Well, good news, you’re in the right place.

I’ve done some research and have found a player who played for both the Tigers and the Orioles.

Mickey Tettleton

Personally, I remember Mickey Tettleton as the all-star catcher who played on the Orioles with Cal Ripken Jr in the late 80s.

But, Tettleton played for 4 different teams over his 14-year career. In addition to Baltimore, he also played for the Tigers (was an all-star there as well), Rangers and Athletics.

Tettleton led the league in walks with 122 in 1992 (had over 900 in his career) with the Tigers and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003.

David Wells

David Wells, nicknamed “Boomer”, was a major force on the baseball mound from 1987 to 2007, spending time with the Blue Jays, Yankees, Padres, and several other teams including Tigers, Red Sox, Dodgers, Reds, Orioles and White Sox.

A key player in the Yankees’ ’98 World Series win, Wells also pitched a rare perfect game that same year.

His career stats are impressive, with a total of 239 wins and over 2,200 strikeouts over the course of 21 seasons.

Gregg Olson

Gregg Olson was a relief pitcher who played from 1988 to 2001. Olson spent the majority of his career with the Baltimore Orioles, where he served as the team’s closer. However, he played for 9 different teams over his 14 year career.

He won the American League Rookie of the Year award in 1989 with the Orioles, when he recorded 27 saves with a 1.69 ERA. In his career, Olson was an All-Star once (also with Orioles), and he accumulated 217 saves, with a career ERA of 3.46.
