Gopher, I can picture it all. I remember when the Twins and the Braves played in the World Series. I became a Kirby Pucket fan. They called it the Cinderella series since both teams had been in last place or close to it the year before. I recall Kent Herbeck eased one of the Braves off first base and we gave him hell for the rest of the series. Everyone would chant, "Herbeck! Herbeck!" when he would get up to bat. He was the Twin we loved to hate. I have a soft spot in my heart for the Twins, even though they won the series that year. I'm glad to hear they get an outdoor park. Baseball should be played outdoors. I mean I guess it helps when it rains, but still, in door ball just isn't the same.
The West Michigan White Caps, the defending champions, will be playing the Quad Cities River Bandits, who used to be a Twins Farm team from 1999-2004 on Sunday May 4th. I just bought tickets to the game.
