Tales from the Minnesota Twins Dugout (Hardback)

Kent Hrbek


In his Minnesota Twins career, Kent Hrbek hit 293 home runs and helped his team to two World Series titles. But fans remember the hulking first baseman for much more than his solid play. Hrbek is a Twin Cities lifer, starring at Kennedy High School in nearby Bloomington, Minnesota before signing with the Twins. In fourteen major-league seasons, the only uniform Hrbek wore was the Twins. And since his retirement in 1994, Hrbek has remained visible in the Twin cities, whether assisting charity functions or hosting his locally broadcast outdoors show. In Kent Hrbek's "Tales from the Twins Dugout", the fan favorite looks back at his playing career in Minnesota. Many stories revolve around the championship seasons of 1987 and 1991. Hrbek also shares his memories of the late Kirby Puckett, the star of those championship teams. He tells of his close friendship and the sudden end of that relationship with third baseman Gary Gaetti. Kent Hrbek's "Tales from the Twins Dugout" is a humorous, insightful, and at times heartbreaking story of one of the most memorable eras in team history, from one of Minnesota's very own.
