    I wouldn't have known without the caption on the webpage. Google image search does wonders.

    I have found the list of Twins uniform numbers from baseball reference very helpful on this thread. http://www.baseball-reference.com/te...-numbers.shtml

    While I might not always recognize the picture at first, I can usually put a name with the face once I've skimmed through the list of guys who've had the number.

    This list from sometime TD contributor Stew Thornley contains coaches and managers as well.

    Only one man in the history of the Minnesota Twins has worn the 3.

    Or ever will.

    I'm not sure I got it with the searching. The photo file name has Oliva in it, so I assume he's the one about to shake Carew's hand. It looks like bad-knees Tony and '70s hideousness in the uniforms, which would make it Steve Braun. If it's 1970 or prior, it's Bob Allison, but #4 looks too small standing next to Carew to be him.

    The time between the advent of the hideous uniforms and Tony-O's retirement was only 1972 to 1976, so I knew it was Braunie. I believe he yielded his no. 4 to Mauch when he arrived in '76. The weird things I remember...

    Snepp, thank you for starting this thread. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and look for ward to the last couple days. Unfortunately there will be no surprises on opening day.

    In case you can't make out the signature, think 2nd worst trade by a Minnesota franchise in 1988-89. The Two Tommy Swap, leading to this guy, about eleven months before Herschel Walker came to town...
