MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL, MN – In celebration of the team’s 60th season in Minnesota, and in proud support of efforts to provide every kid a safe place to play, the Minnesota Twins today introduced a limited edition Twins Hall of Fame Bobblehead set depicting the 34 members of this exclusive club — including 2020 electee Justin Morneau. The Twins Hall of Fame Bobblehead set will go on sale at 10:00 a.m. CT tomorrow (Thursday, August 13) only at twinsbaseball.com/hofbobbles; net proceeds will benefit the Minnesota Twins Community Fund.
The Twins Hall of Fame, which honors players, managers, coaches and off-field personnel who have contributed to the organization’s growth and success since Minnesota broke into the major leagues in 1961, was created as part of the club’s 40th Season Celebration in 2000. The inaugural class of Twins Hall of Famers — Harmon Killebrew, Rod Carew, Tony Oliva, Kent Hrbek, Kirby Puckett and Calvin Griffith — was inducted on August 12, 2000. Other inductees include: pitcher Jim Kaat and broadcaster Herb Carneal (2001); pitcher Bert Blyleven and manager Tom Kelly (2002); long-time public address announcer Bob Casey and outfielder Bob Allison (2003); catcher Earl Battey (2004); pitcher Frank Viola (2005) and owner Carl Pohlad (2005); shortstop Zoilo Versalles (2006); third baseman Gary Gaetti (2007) and farm director Jim Rantz (2007); pitcher Rick Aguilera (2008); pitcher Brad Radke and farm and scouting director George Brophy (2009); shortstop Greg Gagne (2010); pitcher Jim Perry (2011); pitcher Camilo Pascual (2012); pitcher Eddie Guardado and director of media relations Tom Mee (2013); outfielder Torii Hunter and radio broadcaster John Gordon (2016); outfielder Michael Cuddyer and former general manager Andy MacPhail (2017); pitcher Johan Santana (2018); and, pitcher Joe Nathan and former club president Jerry Bell (2019). Morneau, a first baseman, was elected in January 2020; due to the COVID-19 pandemic, his official induction ceremony is delayed until the 2021 season.
