Dave Boswell: March, 1966 Baseball Digest Twins Feature



(Update, Feb. 23, 2013: )
Hope you enjoy some old school writing above, plus this LIFE magazine story (hit next 1x, see contents, go to Sain story!) from Sept., 1965, about renowned Twins pitching coach Johnny Sain - cool piece on the man, so far ahead of his times! He pointedly mentions Dave Boswell and Jim Merritt. Fascinating guy! Former Twins star right hander Dave Boswell passed away on Monday, June 11. I hope to piece on the greatest game he ever pitched.

GREATEST GAME

I'm thinking it was '69 ALCS game two vs. the Orioles.

Looking forward to reading that story.

My favorite memory about Dave Boswell was that Billy Martin gave him a black eye. Things like that don't happen much anymore.
