Hugh Ambrose Jennings, inspirational leader of the hard-charging Detroit Tigers, demonstrates his trademark coaching style. The ever-grinning Irishman was a master psychologist, constantly whistling and pulling grass, kicking, and yelling his famous battle cry while skillfully intertwining his signals and antics. Winning pennants in his first three seasons at the helm, Hughie Jennings served as manager for 14 years, second longest tenure in franchise history.
