November 24 in Tigers and mlb history:

1922: The Washington Senators traded Ray Francis to the Detroit Tigers for Chick Gagnon.

1948: The Detroit Tigers drafted Dale Long from the Boston Red Sox in the 1948 minor league draft.

1953: The Brooklyn Dodgers sign the relatively unknown Walter Alston to a one-year pact as their manager for next season. Alston, who had served as the skipper of the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate in Montreal, replaces Chuck Dressen after Pee Wee Reese turns down the job. Alston will manage the Dodgers in Brooklyn and Los Angeles over the next 23 seasons, winning 2,040 games and four World Championships.

1976: Joe Morgan outpoints Cincinnati Reds teammate George Foster to win his second straight National League MVP Award. Morgan hit .320 with 27 home runs, 111 RBI, 113 runs, 60 stolen bases, and led the NL in slugging percentage (.576) and OPS (1.020).

1977: Former Major League manager Mayo Smith dies at the age of 62. Smith skippered the Philadelphia Phillies, Cincinnati Reds and Detroit Tigers during a nine-year managerial career, but gained most of his fame when he guided the Tigers to the 1968 World Championship.

1982: Cal Ripken, Jr., who hit .264 with 28 home runs as a shortstop and third baseman for the Baltimore Orioles, is named American League Rookie of the Year. His consecutive games played streak is in its infancy at 118 games.

1997: The Boston Red Sox purchased Jimmy Hurst from the Detroit Tigers.

1998: The Detroit Tigers signed Rickey Cradle as a free agent.
1998: The Detroit Tigers signed Nelson Cruz as a free agent.
1998: The Detroit Tigers signed Felipe Lira as a free agent.
1998: The Detroit Tigers signed Joe Siddall as a free agent.

2003: The Detroit Tigers signed Ariel Prieto as a free agent.

2009: Albert Pujols of the St. Louis Cardinals is the unanimous choice as winner of the National League MVP Award. It is the third time Pujols wins this honor, having done so previously in 2005 and 2008.

2013: The Detroit Tigers signed Eduardo Sanchez as a free agent.
