Blyleven Goes Into Hall of Fame Today
Former Twin starting pitcher Bert Blyleven will go into the Baseball Hall of Fame today in Cooperstown, New York. Blyleven is expected to speak at 1:50pm (CT) and his 85-year old mother is expected to be in the front row. The Twins have already retired his number #28 at Target Field this season. Blyleven is 3rd all-time in major league history in strikeouts and is widely considered to have one of the best curve balls of all time.
