Billy Consolo, 1961
Ted Lepcio, 1961
Jim Snyder, 1962
Vic Wertz, 1963
Tony Oliva, 1964-75
Tony Oliva, 1976 (Player-Coach)
Tony Oliva, 1977-78, 1985-91 (Coach)
Obviously, it's Tony O, who was just wrapping up his career and becoming a coach when I started tuning into games on our little AM radio. According to the list above, Oliva was a player-coach in 1976, and I was absolutely following the Twins at that time, but I don't remember how that worked out. Was he a coach for half the year? Or was he a true player coach. Anyone know?
