On fellow HoFer Al Kaline, who died Mon. at 85, Jim Bunning, his 1955-63 Det. teammate, said in our 2012 interview: "He was a classy player every day. He'd show up, never complain, played hurt." Of Kaline's legendary consistency, Bunning, who died at 85 in 2017, said, "(you) never knew he was there until he dove into the seats and caught a home run and came out, then all of a sudden, ‘gee what a great player,' but that's the way he was every day."
