Major League Debuts as Minnesota Twins – Parks, Pettibone, Edwards & Clark

Major League Debuts as Minnesota Twins on September 11th.

Derek Parks (C) – September 11, 1992 – Drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the 1st round (10th pick) of the 1986 amateur draft. Parks debuted in the Dome when the Twins were  hosting the California Angels. The Twins were down 5-0 when Parks replaced Brian Harper at catcher and had a single in his first big league at bat and walked in his second plate appearance but the Twins came out on the short end of an 8-0 game.

Jay Pettibone (P) – September 11, 1983 – Signed as a Free Agent with the Minnesota Twins on February 23, 1981. Started the Twins versus Royals game on the mound at the Metrodome and pitched a complete game but took the loss in a 3-1 effort. Pettibone only allowed 6 hits but 2 were home runs and thus the 3 runs allowed with 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. Attendance at the Dome for the game? 4,820 is all.

Dave Edwards (OF) – September 11, 1978 – Drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the 7th round of the 1971 amateur draft. Debuted at Comiskey Park as the center fielder hitting sixth. Edwards went 1 for 4 with a double and an error. Twins beat the White Sox 3-1.

Ron Clark (3B/SS/2B) – September 11, 1966 – Sent from the Los Angeles Angels to the Minnesota Twins in an unknown transaction in 1963. Debuted as a pinch-runner in a 11-6 Twins win over the Orioles at Met Stadium.
