Twins 101: The Day The Twins Were Greenlighted For Moving To Minnesota, Oct. 26, 1960 From the safety of the walls of my study, book and Twins bobbleheads looking down on me in great thought, comes a new post, "It's Official: Senators Announce Move To Minnesota, Oct. 26, 1960." It gives a short glimpse into the intrigue and downright un-transparent (opaque?) nature of the pre-move behavior by Griffith and the American League in 1960.

It was a whole month before anyone ever used the word "Twins" in any context other than that involving Minneapolis and St. Paul. But that's a story for another time (and which is conveniently linked at the beginning of the above piece).

I hope you enjoy the read-centric nature of my latest, minor classic.

Apologies for missed grammar, sentence fragments in original post! Fixes hopefully made now.


Apparently, the late-night World Series and play off game end times have messed with my sleeping patterns, and thus the sharpness of any blog writings. A casualty am I of October baseball! :D
