Summary
"When the Washington Senators moved to Minnesota before the 1961 season, baseball fans throughout the Upper Midwest were thrilled to have a roster of established stars such as Harmon Killebrew, Bob Allison, and Camilo Pascual on their own major-league team. And over the next half-century, the team gave fans plenty to cheer about. In the pages of this unique book, the sights, sounds, and smells of the ballpark come alive as chapters in the Twins story are told, not chronologically, but through brief essays accompanied by close to 200 color photos of the pennants, jerseys, championship rings, gloves, signed baseballs, ticket stubs, commemorative items, and other pieces of memorabilia the text describes. The early pages cover the period before the Twins arrived, extending back to town ball, minor league teams, and the days of exhibition games and barnstorming tours. In subsequent chapters we relive the Twins' World Series appearances, and also the near misses. Individual achievements and milestones are also on display, from the bat with which Harmon Killebrew hit his 573rd home run, to Rod Carew's spikes and Kirby Puckett's Silver Slugger award. Metropolitan Stadium, the Metrodome, and Target Field define successive eras in Twins history, with memorabilia unique to each. The bobbleheads, Homer Hankies, score cards, and other souvenirs will bring back memories old and new to all fans of the Minnesota Twins and Major League Baseball."--Publisher's website
