Excerpts from Cool of the Evening

1965 Minnesota Twins bobblehead
Smash mouth

Jim Kaat set a record for winning Gold Gloves during his career, but he had one very bad day in the field.

Bittersweet

Twins' owner Calvin Griffith endured a rollercoaster ride in Minnesota.

Crunch time

Harmon Killebrew's home run before the '65 All-Star break was a season-defining moment.


"Nothing a ballplayer can do means quite so much as delivering when a base hit means something in the pennant fight. You can't look over your shoulder for someone to help you. You do it yourself, because if you don't there isn't time for anybody else to do it."

– Bernie Allen, infielder.
