June 22, 1988 I went to a Twins vs Angels game with Frankie sweet music Viola pitching. The game was just over two hours. Viola pitched a complete game three hitter. Moses was 3-3 with an rbi and a run. Oh, the memories!

Thanks x 2! My mom made me shave the mustache shortly after that photo was taken.

I so disliked Moses but it was entirely because he replaced Tom Brunansky in RF. Obviously like every sane Twins fan I disliked Tommy Herr more, but Moses was a close second even though the disdain was irrational.

I do remember getting a kick out of Moses pitching however. He was the first position player that I had seen do it and it was a novel idea to me. He actually made it to the mound in three games.

I always dreamed of winning a playoff or WS game with this Moses or our later first round pick named Moses leading the way so the headline would read - Moses Leads Twins to Promised Land.
