May 27, 1964 -- When I Became A Twins Fan For Life

As a five-year-old in 1964, I used to listen to all the Twins and Gophers games on the radio with my dad. As luck would have it, the May 27th game between the Twins and Angels was televised -- rare stuff for that day. Don Mincher hit a solo shot in the 13th to win it for the Twins, 4-3. I've been a die-hard Twins fan ever since. And Don Mincher became my first "favorite baseball player", although he soon relinquished the title to Harmon Killebrew. Then Tony Oliva. Then Rod Carew. And the list has continued on for the past 45 years...
