Former Twin Oliva partaking in third Minnesota All-Star Game

There he was, a 25-year-old rookie, standing among some of the best to ever play the game. Willie Mays. Roberto Clemente. Mickey Mantle. Harmon Killebrew. Hank Aaron. Somehow, some way, Tony Oliva wedged his way into that elite group. His numbers more than validated his selection to the 1964 All-Star Game, but the Cuba native and Twins outfielder still couldn't believe he was...

Twins curator Doepner is truly one of a kind

MINNEAPOLIS As Clyde Doepner walked past the Minnesota Twins' clubhouse Tuesday at Target Field, he was introduced to a group of children taking a tour of the park while the team was out of town.

Organist Nelson has become Twins institution

MINNEAPOLIS This is more than just a musical instrument. Perched high above the infield at Target Field, just a shade toward third base, Sue Nelson's organ is tucked among the red- and blue-clad bodies. Yes, it's the property of the Twins but in name only. The instrument still somehow belongs to Nelson. It's covered in Crayola-colored drawings she's been given...

Impact of Harmon Killebrew stretched beyond diamond

Perhaps the greatest compliment you can pay Hall of Fame slugger Harmon Killebrew is to simply state he was a baseball player.

Major League Baseball Legend Harmon Killebrew Dies

Today is a moment that will always be part of sports history. There is nothing I can say that would be more worthy than the wise words of the Major League Hall of Famer, himself, Harmon Killebrew. “Life is precious and time is a key element. Let’s make every moment count and help those who have a greater need than our own.” That being said, May 17, 2011 is a day to remember...
