"I liked him. He snapped the ball out in left field, a rocket. Really quick feet over there, quick action. A live body, for sure. Took some good rips up there.” Twins Manager Ron Gardenhireon his one-game fill-in Eduardo Nunez. Nunez is normally an infielder, and was purchased from the New York Yankees because of his greater proficiency as a hitter over the incumbent Twins SS, Pedro Florimon. Time is likely ticking on the Florimon Era as the starter.

Met Stadium Memories


1967 game at Metropolitan Stadium

My friend Jim Knoll at Flashback Bloomington on Facebook had some marvelous photos on his site to share.  A late 1960s "Game of the Week" feature is to follow!  Great stuff!

As Herb would say:
"...and the count rides along...!'
