This Day in Twins History – October 7, 1965

The Twins win game 2 of the 1965 World Series when Jim Kaat beats Sandy Koufax and the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in front of 48,700 delirious fans at the Met. Bob Allison makes a fantastic catch sliding across the LF line in the top of the fifth inning off the bat of 2B Jim Lefebvre and to this day this is one of the finest fielding plays ever seen in a World Series.
