Minnesota Twins through Memorabilia
Hardcover ISBN: 1935666681
In the pages of this unique book, the story of the Minnesota Twins is told through brief pieces of text accompanied by spectacular photos of pennants, jerseys, championship rings, ticket stubs, signed baseballs, commemorative items, and other pieces of memorabilia. The early pages cover baseball in Minnesota before the Twins arrived, when town ball, minor league teams, and exhibition games were widespread. In subsequent chapters we relive the Twins' arrival from Washington, D.C., their World Series appearances, and also the near misses. Individual achievements 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. Memorabilia from Metropolitan Stadium, the Metrodome, and Target Field are included. The bobbleheads, Homer Hankies, programs, and other souvenirs will bring back memories, as will the entries on Halsey Hall, Herb Carneal, and other beloved announcers who have added so much excitement to the game.
