% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In my book “Cubanos in Wisconsin“, I wrote about the Minnesota Twins, the 1965 AL champs.   They were the first team that I followed after arriving in Wisconsin back in 1964.

We say happy # 79 to Jimmie Hall, one of my favorite players on those Minnesota teams.

Hall had a quick start in the majors:  33 HR and 80 RBI in his rookie season of 1963.   

In 1965, Hall hit .285, 20 HR and 88 RBI.   He was part of a lineup that included Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew, AL batting champ Tony Oliva, AL MVP Zoilo Versalles and power hitter Bob Allison.

Hall played 4 seasons with the Twins:  98 HR and 288 RBI.    He was traded to the Angels in 1967 and bounced around several teams until his retirement in 1970.

Happy birthday Jimmie Hall!
