The Continuing Saga: 1971 Topps

#39 Lerrin LaGrow/Gene Lamont Tigers Rookie Stars

Lerrin LaGrow is one of the few players to ever be suspended for the entirety of a League Championship Series. In 1972, both he and Bert Campaneris were suspended after LaGrow hit Campaneris with a pitch, Campaneris threw his bat at LaGrow, and a full out riot broke out between the Tigers and A's.
