Box Score of the week

Since this is the 20th anniversary season of the Minnesota Twins' last World Series title, let's go with a game from that wonderful '91 campaign.


Future Hall of Famer (and current Minnesota Twin) Jim Thome made his major league debut on September 4, 1991 as a member of the Cleveland Indians. Playing against the Twins on this day, he struck out against lefthander David West in his first ever at-bat. Interesting to note that Thome played third base in this game. He's pretty much been a full time DH since 2006.

I would guess that the game you picked was Jim Thome's major league debut.
