"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.

Kodak Snapshot Picks, October 8, 2011

Each of these masterpieces of film are clickable for a larger version....
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.
