I didn't dislike him as a player, but I did dislike that the state of the team caused him to be written into the lineup as DH several times.
Better than every middle infielder the Twins have had since.
Duck and cover...
Brought a lot of pleasure to Twins fans during his time here.
Lyman Bostock 11/22/1950-9/23/1978
There were four glorious seasons between the dash, above. Fans at Metropolitan Stadium and other ballparks saw Bostock bat .336/.389/.508 in 1977, before journeying west to join the Angels for his final season under the sun.
Now he is safe at home. Rest eternal, Lyman Wesley Bostock.
Lyman Bostock quickly became one of my favorite players. IMO, he was the best home-grown talent the team had since Carew. He seemed like a wonderful person, which is even better.
I am personally glad that players can't be free agents after 3 ML seasons any more. The players may disagree.

I watched the final inning again on youtube the other day. Still gives me goosebumps.
