Early Minnesota Twins Snapshots,, Oct. 8, 2011


Pedro Ramos & friend, circa 1961.

Presumably, it's not one of his 
gun-running, contraband buddies

(see story link)
Pedro is the answer to this Twins trivia 
question: who started and won the 
 very first Twins gameon April 11,1961

There's a man. The one everyone
thought made up his name to
sound good for baseball:
Earl Battey

As our old friend at the mic, Herb Carneal , used to say

Blockey of body Battey, before the palms.
