My brother got me tickets for the Twins Winter Caravan for Christmas at their annual stop in Winona MN. Was a lot of fun and got some nice successes.

Third Base Coach Gene Glynn


TC Bear

All Star Closer Glen Perkins

And the new manager...I think his name in MOLITOR or something like that
Bringing this thread back now that I have my all time box score done and marking off the autos of players that I have seen play in person.
Newest acquisition is Kenny's Vargas.

In 3 games all with Minnesota Vargas had 3 ab's and struck out 3 times. Not so impressive 🤣

thanks to @woodman for the trade that brought me this card #273/1271
Another knocked off the list. Jenrry Mejia picked up today. Saw Mejia on one game in 2014. I pitched 1 inning gave up 2 hits and struck out one, facing 5 batters. A not so impressive WHIP of 2. The Mets defeated the Brewers 2 - 0 that afternoon. #274/1271
Got two new autos to scratch off the list.
Jeremy Hermida
Brewers v Marlins 5/14/2009 @ Miller Park

0 for 1 with a walk.
Thanks to @Landonclark13 for the trade!
Just received this from @yankees1 last week. Saw Abbott pitch in one game against MN on 8/13/95. His line from that game
7 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 2 K. 1.28 ERA, 1.28 WHIP. He got the win over Brad Radke in the game Minnesota retired Kent Hrbek's #14.

Very impressed with Abbott's ability.

Lance Berkman, appeared in 4 games, 3 with Houston, 1 with St Lous. In those games he went 4/16 (.250) 1 double 2 RBI and 4 K's and 27 PO's. .250 obp, .312 sp, .562 OPS.
Thanks to @bblair_2002 for the trade.
7/9/1994 Twins v Indians
Some of the best seats we had up to that point, right by the Cleveland BP and got a nice shot of Martinez warming up
7 IP, 6H, 3R 3ER, 2BB, 7 K'S 3.85 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and got the win.
Hey everyone, thought I would go the route of some of our other benchies and collect all of my successes in one thread. And since I am narrowing my autos down to players I've seen in person I will go game by game starting with #1 Aug 3rd 1983 Twins Vs Angels at the Metrodome.
