Post  Admin on Fri Dec 31, 2010 2:04 am

A native of Michigan, Boros began his career in professional baseball after signing with the Tigers in 1957. He played seven seasons at major league level with the Tigers (1957-58, 1961-62), Chicago Cubs (1963) and Cincinnati Reds (1964-65). Boros spent more than 40 seasons in professional baseball, working the final nine seasons with the Tigers organization as the minor league field coordinator (1996-2002), director of player development (2003) and special assistant to the general manager (2004).
The following is a club statement on the passing of Steve Boros attributable to David Dombrowski, Detroit Tigers President, Chief Executive Officer and General Manager:

"The Detroit Tigers were saddened to hear of the passing of Steve Boros. Steve started and finished his career as a Tiger, first as a player, and most recently with us in the front office. Steve was a life-long baseball man, who we respected for his years of experience as a player, manager and teacher of the game. We've lost another long-standing member of our Tigers' family and the organization extends its heartfelt condolences to the Boros family."
