    Since you didn’t have winners, I’ll take a stab, but I had to look a couple up:

    1. True
    2. Jack Morris
    3. Cal Ermer
    4. Howard Fox
    5. Johnny Sain

  2. Brent says:

    Can someone find out the last no-hitter that Joe ever caught? It doesn’t have to be major league. (i.e. Cretin, Air Frieght, A, AA, AAA) I am curious. Liriano pitched a no no, but Mauer was out that day.

    Please reply.

    I have a two good trivia questions. You probably have already used them: ‘Who hit the most home runs in the ’60’s? Who was the first black man to win 20 games in the AL?
    Here is another trivia question- Who has the highest lifetime batting average, with more than 25 at- bats?

    • jjswol says:

      Brian, thank you for your note. The most home runs hit in the 60’s was Harmon Killebrew. Mudcat Grant was the first black 20 game winner in the AL. As far as higest batting average is concerned, it would be Glenn Williams I believe if you are talking strictly with the Twins.

    I’m a NY Mets fan (I feel your pain!), but love baseball in general & trivia…now that Ron Santo is in the hall of fame, isn’t it about time Tony Oliva gets in?

    • jjswol says:

      Mark, Thank you for stopping by and your comment about Tony O, I could not agree more. I just completed an interview with Eddie Bane (former Twins pitcher and now an assistant GM with the Red Sox) that I will be posting soon and here is what he had to say about Tony O.

      “By the way one additional thought on some of the old time baseball guys from the 60’s and 70’s. I have asked a lot of former Major League pitchers who the best hitter they ever faced was. Of the more then 20 pitchers I asked at least half of them said Tony Oliva. Tony never gets his due as far as the Hall of Fame goes, but those pitchers all remember that swing that I can still picture in my mind. Without those lousy knees that he had Tony O would certainly be a Hall of Fame player”.

      Stop by again. jjswol

    we were looking at pictures of the 1987 victory parafe thru Minneaplis & St. Paul. Can any one tell me who was the person riding in the car with Tony Olica?

    • Fr. Stan Mader says:

      I’m almost sure that is his family. The woman looks like his wife, and his children would have been about that age.
