It was the first home playground for the nucleus of what would become the Minnesota Twins: Bob Allison, Harmon Killebrew, Jim Lemon, Zoilo Versalles (did not arrive until September call up from AAA Charleston), Lenny Green, Earl Battey, and, of course, Pascual. Also not seen in the video is Al Worthington, future closer for the Twins in their 1960's glory years. Old "Red" was on the Red Sox roster that year, and pitched four innings in relief of starter Tom Sturdivant that day.
Everybody's just plumb happy. The President brushed back
somebody in the first row by the dugout, I'm pretty sure (4/18/60).
1959 AL Rookie of the Year Bob Allison towers above the
other mortals in this vignette (see Jan. 11, 2011 post on Bob).
Yes, by 1960 this pitching for the Commander-in-Chief thing may have lost its glamour for him. But I doubt it.
