This Day in Twins History – May 30, 1986

Roy Smalley III

DH Roy Smalley III hits a home run from each side of the plate against the Red Sox at the Metrodome in a Twins 13-5 win and becomes the first Twins batter to ever do so. Smalley ended up hitting 110 home runs for Minnesota in his 10 year two tour career with the Twins. Smalley was the son of former big leaguer Roy Smalley Jr. who had an 11 year career with the Cubs, Braves, and Phillies between 1948-1958 and nephew of former Twins manager Gene Mauch. Smalley is a Twins analyst with Fox Sports North these days.
