September 30 in Tigers and mlb history:

1907: An overflow crowd lines the outfield at Philadelphia's Columbia Park for the showdown doubleheader between the A's and Tigers. In the first game, the home team gets off to a 7 - 1 lead against 25-game winner Bill Donovan. But Rube Waddell, who relieves in the 2nd, fails to hold the lead. A 2-run home run by Ty Cobb ties it 8 - 8 in the 9th.
Both teams score once in the 11th; an umpire's ruling costs Philadelphia the game in the 14th: Harry Davis hits a long fly into the crowd in left-centerfield, ordinarily a ground-rule double. As Tiger CF Sam Crawford goes to the crowd's edge, a policeman stands up and moves, either to interfere or to get out of the way. Home plate umpire Silk O'Loughlin says there is no interference, then reverses his ruling when base umpire Tom Connolly offers a different opinion.
When play resumes, the Athletics' Danny Murphy hits a long single that would have scored Davis. The game is called because of darkness in the 17th, a 9 - 9 tie. The second game is never played. The Tigers, in first place, leave for Washington where they will win 4. They will finish 1 1/2 games in front.

1916: In his 153rd game, Tiger 3B Ossie Vitt raises his season total chances to 615, a mark that will stand for 21 years.

1917: Detroit's future Hall of Fame OF Sam Crawford retires from major league baseball at 37. In addition to his career-record 312 three-base hits, he has hit 50 inside-the-park home runs. He will play in the Pacific Coast League for several more years.

1941: The Detroit Tigers drafted Roy Henshaw from the New York Giants in the 1941 rule 5 draft.
1941: The Detroit Tigers drafted Don Ross from the Brooklyn Dodgers in the 1941 rule 5 draft.
1941: The New York Giants drafted Sal Maglie from the Detroit Tigers in the 1941 rule 5 draft.

1944: Hal Newhouser wins his 29th as Detroit whips Washington 7 - 3. "Prince" Hal will win his first of two consecutive MVP awards.

1945: Hank Greenberg hits a pennant-winning grand slam on the final day of the season. The Tiger left fielder's ninth-inning bases-full homer beats the Browns 6 - 3 clinching the American League flag for Detroit over the second-place Senators.

1951: The Tigers drive over the slumping Tribe 2 - 1 behind Virgil Trucks' 13th win of the year.

1967: Boston beats the Twins, 6 - 4, to tie Minnesota for first place. Carl Yastrzemski's 3-run home run gives him the American League-lead with 44, but Harmon Killebrew answers with his 44th for the losers.
Meanwhile, Detroit, which had games rained out on the 28th and 29th, plays two with the Angels. Mickey Lolich wins the opener, 5 - 0, his 3rd straight shutout, and Detroit takes a seemingly safe 6 - 2 lead into the 8th inning of the nitecap. The Angels then bat around, scoring six runs, to hand Detroit a devastating 8 - 6 loss. Detroit now trails Minnesota and Boston by a half-game.

1968: The Chicago White Sox purchased Bob Christian from the Detroit Tigers.

1968: The New York Yankees purchased Jim Rooker from the Detroit Tigers.

1971: The Detroit Tigers released John Hiller.

1972: The Tigers take their 3rd in a row from Milwaukee as John Hiller throws a 5-hitter. Aurelio Rodriguez's 3-run home run is the margin in the 5 - 1 win. The Tigers now return home to face the Red Sox in a 3-game series that will determine which team wins the East.

1972: Roberto Clemente doubles off the Mets' Jon Matlack to become the eleventh major leaguer to collect 3000 hits. The hit, sadly, will be the Pirate right fielder's last, as he will die in a plane crash on New Year's Eve attempting to bring relief aid to earthquake-stricken Managua, Nicaragua.
How does Roberto rate Willie? "The greatest"... with one colorful caveat. One very happy coincidence vis-ŗ-vis Clemente's 3,000th hit [cited above] is the fact that on hand both to witness his achievement and to welcome him into this exclusive club is none other than Clemente's old friend, mentor, role model and rival Willie Mays, currently a New York Met, if, sadly, a largely inactive one. Following a post-game photo session with this dynamic duo, the Pirate superstar reiterates his long held and frequently stated conviction regarding Mays, complete with a more specific version of his customary qualification: "Willie Mays is the greatest player I've ever seen," insists Clemente, speaking with Charley Feeney of the Post Gazette.

1984: The ML umpires announce that they will go on strike at the two LCS scheduled to begin October 2 in an effort to improve their pay and job security and to change the method by which post-season assignments are determined. MLB officials say the games will go on as scheduled using amateur umpires if necessary.

1986: The Detroit Tigers signed Ron Rightnowar as an amateur free agent.

1990: The Detroit Tigers released Jody Davis.

1990: The Detroit Tigers traded Mike Wilkins (minors) to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Mike Munoz.

2002: The Tigers fire manager Luis Pujols.

2002: Ryan Jackson of the Detroit Tigers granted free agency.

2003: The Detroit Tigers signed Rhiner Cruz as an amateur free agent.

2003: Ernie Young of the Detroit Tigers granted free agency.

2012: Prince Fielder's two-run homer off Jared Burton in the 8th gives the Tigers a win. It's his 30th homer of the year, making him and his father Cecil Fielder the second father-son duo to both go deep 30 times in a season for the same franchise; previously, only Bobby Bonds and Barry Bonds of the Giants had done it.

Detroit has fielded only one position player in his age 24 season or younger, third baseman Jeimer Candelario who played one game in August after his acquisition from the Cubs.
That one game is almost the fewest for such Tiger players in the first 125 games of the season (i.e. before September call-ups); only the 1960 and 1969 Tigers had no such players, as their only under-25 position players those years were September call-ups Dick McAuliffe (1960) and Wayne Redmond (1969).

Departing Tigers manager Brad Ausmus says he would be open to managing a new team immediately, although he tells Ken '3 Foot' Rosenthal that there donít seem likely to be many possibilities. 3 Foot, though, points out several, including the Phillies job as well as the Mets job, which is expected to open. The Braves could also be a possibility, and 3 Foot notes that if the Red Sox have a quick playoff exit and opt to part with John Farrell, Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski hired Ausmus while he was an executive in Detroit.
Fredi Gonzalez looks to have many qualifications that could be attractive to the Tigers, including past managerial experience with a rebuilding club (the Marlins) and connections to Tigers GM Al Avila (with whom he worked while both were in the Marlins organization). The Tigers will, however, consider any number of other candidates.
One they might not consider too carefully is Giants third base coach Phil Nevin, who the Tigers fired as their Triple-A manager near the end of the 2013 season.
