Al Worthington: Book Excerpt, 2004 Autobiography

[COMPLETELY RE-EDITED Oct. 29, 2013, NEW BOOK EMBED, UPON REMOVAL OF BASEBALL DIGEST SITE PDFs FROM INTERNET - REINSERTED BOOK "I PLAYED AND I WON," GOOGLE BOOKS EMBED]

Use the Table of Contents to discover info from book on old Al "Red" Worthington. (BBRef.). This very good man was the Twins first consistent relief stopper, on a consistent basis.
