Episode #004 – Dan Dillman, Tigers’ batboy in the 1940s


Dan Dillman worked as a batboy at Briggs (Tiger) Stadium from 1948-1950, rubbing shoulders with baseball legends in the visitors’ clubhouse and dugout. He reminisces about his experiences in his book Hey Kid! A Tiger Batboy Remembers. I spoke with Dillman about his memories from his front row seat for baseball history.

  1. My grandfather, Larry Woodall played for the Tigers from 1920-1929, and later worked for the Red Sox from 1942-1963. He was the 3rd base coach through the 40’s, at the time of Danny Dillman’s book. I am trying to get in touch with Mr Dillman- if he is still alive- to see if there is any memory of Larry. Any info or direction that you can provide would be of help. Thank you for your time and trouble-
