Remembering 1965 – Part 20 – Kindall, Merritt, Boswell, Battey and the All-Star game

When the dog days of August ended the Twins had a 7 1/2 game lead on the Chicago White Sox, were winning at a .616 clip and had a record of 84-50, 34 games above the .500 mark. The team was marching towards their first pennant in spite of all the injuries the team had encountered.
