    The Detroit Tigers' 1989 season was a season in American baseball. It involved the Detroit Tigers attempting to win the AL East.

    Offseason

    Regular season

    In August, pitcher Charles Hudson, driving drunk, slammed his Mercury Cougar into a telephone pole in a Detroit suburb. He broke his left leg and his right knee needed reconstructive surgery. Hudson would later discuss how he began to drink as he struggled in his baseball career. He would not pitch in the major leagues again and the Tigers released him in November 1989.[7]
