I noted earlier that IBB were included in the table above, so here are a couple of trivia questions for you.

1. Four Twins drew 100 or more IBB during their Twins career, can you name them?

2. I played in 618 Twins games and had 1,876 plate appearances but no opposing pitcher ever saw fit to give me an intentional free pass, who am I?

    Four Twins have been issued 100 or more IBB, they are Killebrew, Oliva, Mauer, and Hrbek. Never given an IBB in 1,876 PA’s, that would be Al Newman.
