Alan Stuart Trammell (born February 21, 1958) is a retired American baseball shortstop of the Detroit Tigers from 1977 to 1996. Trammell, nicknamed "Tram", played his entire career with the Tigers, highlighted by a World Series championship in 1984 and an American League East division championship in 1987. An excellent all-around shortstop of the 1980s, Trammell excelled at both offense and defense. He had good range, soft hands and was smooth turning the double play. Although his arm was not overpowering, he had a quick release and made accurate throws. Trammell''s defense perfectly complemented the play of his double play partner, Lou Whitaker. At the plate, Trammell was one of the best-hitting shortstops of his era and won three Silver Slugger awards. Trammell would later serve as the team''s manager from 2003 through 2005. He currently is the bench coach for the Chicago Cubs.
