Thanks for the link. I, too, loved Tovar during his days with the Twins. Little guy who played big.

Brilliant article. Tovar was a very fun player to watch in the early 70s. Billy Martin was right: he could beat you in so many ways, with his glove, his legs, his bat, his "je ne sais quoi" -- you knew he was a competitor and might do anything, at any time, including stealing home. I will always remember his name with great fondness -- that baseball is a sport made up of unique individuals, big, small, fat, skinny -- the works -- with 5' 5" Cesar Tovar being one of the great representatives -- heart, soul and determination.
