Major League Debuts as Minnesota Twins – Jacque Jones & Tommy Hall

We have two players that had their big league debuts wearing the colors of the Minnesota Twins on June 9th.

Jacque Jones (OF) – June 9, 1999 – Drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the 2nd round of the 1996 amateur draft. Jacques debut was nothing special going 0-4 and making the final out of the game but he went on to have a nice career in Minnesota playing for seven seasons and playing in 978 games.


Tommy Hall

Tom Hall (P) – June 9, 1968 – Drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the 3rd round of the 1966 amateur draft (January). Debuted in relief in a losing cause (7-4) at D.C. Stadium against the Senators going 2 innings, striking out 2, walking 2 and allowing 2 hits but no runs. I always liked Tommy Hall, what amazed me most about him was that in his 10 year career (only 4 in Minnesota) he allowed just 656 hits and struck out 797 in 852.2 innings pitched.
