(AP) Gates Brown, an outfielder who played his entire 13-year major league career with the Detroit Tigers, has died. He was 74.


The team confirmed Brown's death Friday.


Brown played on Detroit's 1968 team that won the World Series, and was part of another title with the Tigers in 1984 as a batting coach.


Brown never played more than 125 games in a season, but he made a nice contribution during the title year of '68, when he hit .370 in 67 games. He ended up playing 1,051 games in his career, finishing with a .257 average and 84 home runs.
