Three former Twins inducted into Baseball Hall of Fame

(Cooperstown, NY) — Three former Minnesota Twins players have now been immortalized in Cooperstown.

Outfielder Tony Oliva, pitcher Jim Kaat, and slugger David Ortiz were all inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame yesterday.

Kaat won 16 Gold Glove awards in his career, and he credited Jack McKeon with molding him into the pitcher that he became.

The three-time batting champ Oliva spoke about how grateful he was to finally enter the Hall after a long wait.

Ortiz began his big league career in Minnesota, but was inducted into the Hall of Fame as a member of the Boston Red Sox, where he became a star.
