Elmore takes the Tigers Fan Quiz in honor of the World Series.

Julie Hinds
Detroit Free Press

Novelist and Hollywood narrative source extraordinaire Elmore Leonard keeps his dialogue crisp, clean and to the point. And thus it was when the Free Press asked him to take the Tigers Fan Quiz in honor of the World Series.

Here, in his own words, the man behind movie hits like “Out of Sight” and “Get Shorty” and FX’s “Justified” shares a Leonard-style scoop on his favorite players and moments. You can almost hear Marshal Raylan Givens giving the clipped answers.

Favorite Tiger of the current 2012 season: Avisail Garcia.

Favorite Tiger ever:
George Kell.

How old were you when you saw your first Tigers game in person?: 12.

Who took you to the game?: My mom and dad.

Classic game or moment: Man on base, Charlie Gehringer at bat.

Something they’ve done that you’ll always remember: I’ll never forget the 1941 All-Star Game. Ted Williams hit a home run into the rightfield upper deck and I was sitting 60 feet away.

Are you wearing any Tigers gear or accessories to root for the team?: No.

Where do you plan to watch the World Series? In my living room.

Any superstitions or habits when you watch a game? No.

What’s your prediction on the World Series? Tigers in 5 games.
