I have read numerous books about the Minnesota Twins organization and their players over the years not to mention having many of these books in my personal library. That got me to wondering how many books are out there about the boys of summer from Minnesota. So after a little research here is what I have come up with, I am sure I have missed some. There are over 90 books on this list, not bad for a team that has been around for only 56 years. If you know of others not on this list, please let me know.

Click on the book cover to get additional information about the book and where you might be able to acquire it. Many of these books are out of print and you may only be able to acquire used copies. Don’t forget about your local library, they have lots of these books for you to read free of charge.

Great job, John! As a librarian and Twins’ fan, I appreciate the work that went into this. I own only a handful of these titles and (being outside the Twin Cities market) have seen only a few more.

Thank you for the kind words Mariam, I hope you can track down some of these book and enjoy them.
