Sorry. I forgot about that. It's a sad day for me. The Minnesota Twins represent the state of Minnesota in Major League Baseball in the United states. Kerby Puckett was a LEGEND on our team from the 1980's to 1996 when he retired because of the eye disease guacoma. Hey suffered a massive stroke Sunday, lost conciousness, and died today. These next few days will be really dark for Twins fans like me...

He was a great player. Like so many others, he had problems off the field but on the field he was great. His death causes sadness throughout the baseball community. He was not very old at all when he died. Many young player should be more like Mr. Puckett on the diamond. Sad

Thanks for the link (I don't know how to do those). Yup, the 91 world series was the best ever in my opinion. That homer he cranked off in the 11th was awesome! That's probably what I'll remember him most for.

RIP Kirby Pukett 1960-2006

I cant believe I spelled the name wrong in that last post! (I'm a bad at typing) It's Puckett with a C

Wow...
I remember the days me and my dad would go to the games watch him play. Those times are long gone now (I currently live in Nashville, TN). He sure was my hero and the best Twins player, also. He will be greatly missed here.
