Carlos Guillen To Be Honored By Detroit Tigers

On Aug. 4, the Detroit Tigers will be honoring former player Carlos Guillen prior to the team's game against the Cleveland Indians. Guillen will be throwing out the first pitch in addition to being inducted into the Hispanic Heritage Baseball Museum Hall of Fame.

Guillen spent seven seasons as a member of the Tigers, playing with the club from 2004-2011. He appeared in three All-Star Games over that span (2004, 2007, 2008).

One of Guillen's best seasons came in 2006 when he hit .320 with 19 home runs and 85 RBI, which was topped off with an American League Championship and a run to the World Series. He followed up that season with a .296 batting average, 21 home runs and 102 RBI in 2007.

Guillen ultimately finished his 13-year career with a .285 batting average, 124 home runs and 660 RBI.

His ceremony will come shortly after a similar ceremony was paid to teammate Magglio Ordonez, which occurred in June.
