Box Score of the Week

My beloved Minnesota Twins hosted the California Angels at Metropolitan Stadium 35 years ago today.


As a 10-year old, this was the first Twins game I ever attended in person. 

Another factoid about this game is the Twins used a relief pitcher by the name of Mike Bacsik. Almost exactly 28 years later, Bacsik's son Mike, Jr., while pitching for the Washington Nationals, allowed Barry Bonds 756th* home run, which broke the all time mark held by Hank Aaron since 1974.
