Ordonez receives Silver Bat
Tigers' cleanup hitter honored for winning AL batting title
By Scott McNeish / MLB.com

DETROIT -- The punctuation for Magglio Ordonez's historic accomplishment transpired before Saturday's game at Comerica Park.

In a pregame presentation before 42,381 delighted fans, Chuck Schupp of Louisville Slugger presented the Detroit right fielder and cleanup hitter with the Silver Bat trophy for his 2007 American League batting title.

"It's nice -- a nice thing to put in your house," Ordonez said after a 5-3 loss to the White Sox that followed.

Louisville Slugger presents the Silver Bat every year to the batting champions in both the American League and National League. Colorado's Matt Holiday, the reigning NL batting champ, will receive his award Monday.

Ordonez led the Major Leagues last year with a .363 average, by far a career high. He added 54 doubles, 28 home runs and 139 RBIs. Ordonez finished second in the AL MVP voting to the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez, made his sixth AL All-Star team and won his third Silver Slugger Award, an honor given to the top offensive players at each position in both leagues.

His .311 career average ranks ninth among active players, one spot behind teammate Miguel Cabrera.

Nine Tigers players have captured batting titles a total of 23 times in the organization's 107-year history. Ty Cobb won it 12 times from 1907-19; Harry Heilmann won four in the 1920s; Heinie Manush once in 1926; Charlie Gehringer in '37; George Kell in '49; Al Kaline in '55; Harvey Kuenn in '59; and Norm Cash in '61.

Picking up where he left off, Ordonez smashed hits in his first two at-bats this year on Opening Day. He strives to become the first repeat batting champion since Nomar Gaciaparra in 1999 and 2000.

Ordonez has struggled since those first at-bats, though, going 3-for-19. He went 1-for-4 on Saturday to raise his season average to .238.
