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.

Twins Yearbook, 1969- Lenny Green, "Where Are They Now?"

This post follows up the Lenny feature from last weekend.  The "Where Are They Now" series appeared in the Twins yearbooks for a number of seasons in the late '60s and early '70s. You can expect to see some featuring Billy "Shotgun" Gardner, Bill Tuttle, Bob Allison, etc., in later posts.

Lenny forgot to say "Make sure Billy Martin doesn't slug any of the starting pitchers after hours in Detroit this year!"

 "Nobody told me we'd be stuck in coach."
The Twins added this photo to the "looking back at.." feature.
And the count rides along...
