Kent Hrbek's Tales from the Minnesota Twins Dugout (Tales)

Kent Hrbek's Tales from the Minnesota Twins Dugout

Big first baseman Kent Hrbek was one of the games true characters, a throwback whose personal tastes were every bit as Ruthian as the monstrous homers for which he is remembered. At a time when professional athletes were discovering the benefits of personal trainers and dieticians, he frequently expressed his preference for a diet of junk food and beer. He and teammates like Gary Gaetti, Tom Brunansky, and late Hall of Famer Kirby Puckett played the game with a passion seldom seen in modern sports, and brought fun and humor into the Twins clubhouse. It was a place where a manager had to ban the cleaning of fish in the trainers room, and where practical jokes were more commonplace than scouting reports. It wasnt all fun and games, however. Hrbek and Gaetti became best friends, but had that friendship strained when Gaetti found religion and tried to push his beliefs including no beer onto Hrbek. Finally, late in his career, Hrbek battled serious shoulder injuries before retiring.

Tales From the Minnesota Twins Dugout

Tales From the Minnesota Twins

Imagine a story in which a young man grows up so close to a major-league ballpark that he can see the stadium lights from his front yard. He pretends to be the team's star during neighborhood ball games and fantasizes about one day playing for his hometown team. Stop imagining. Kent Hrbek made those childhood dreams come true. Hrbek was born and raised in Bloomington, Minnesota, site of the Twins' first Minnesota home, Met Stadium. The kid who dreamed about being a Minnesota Twin played 14 seasons for the franchise, helping the club win two World Series titles. His jersey is now one of five retired by the Twins, hanging alongside the likes of Tony Oliva, the hitter he emulated as a child. It's a fairytale story. But it's only part of Kent Hrbek's Tales from the Minnesota Twins Dugout. There's a cruel reality to the story as well. Hrbek was a 20 year-old playing in Class-A ball when he learned that his father was dying of Lou Gehrig's disease. He endured two series knee injuries before playing a full minor-league season. And he played hurt most of his career, drowning Tylenol as if they were M&Ms. Kent Hrbek's Tale from the Minnesota Twins Dugout is the story of those dreams and realities. Enjoy the humorous tales of pranks pulled by him and his zany teammates, revel in the person...
