Northrup remembered by his alma mater
He was honored with a moment of silence prior to Thursday's game between the Tigers and Mariners.
Born in Breckenridge, Mich., and playing high school ball just down M-46 at St. Louis High School — the geographic Middle of the Mitten — before earning 15 varsity letters at nearby Alma College, the former Detroit Tigers outfielder was always fondly remembered in the mid-Michigan area fondly.
Here's a video put together by his alma mater, where the scoreboard at the baseball stadium, Klenk Park, is named in honor of Northrup. Here's a link to the Alma College website's statement on Northrup's passing.
