I made my favorite Ludington Daily News peak-moment sports photograph of all time during a Detroit Tigers game against the Milwaukee Brewers in Milwaukee on June 21, 1986. Tiger Chet Lemon was sliding into home plate head-first as Brewer catcher Rick Cerone was putting the tag on him and looking for the call from the umpire. Tiger Kirk Gibson, who had just scored, had an equally close, view. Lemon was called, “out”, causing a storm of protest from the Tigers, who went on to win 4-3.
