Following a disappointing 1978 season and the departure of Rod Carew, the Twins leaned the likes of Roy Smalley on Minnesota native Jerry Koosman to lead this promotional commercial leading into the 1979 season. Koosman went on to have a stellar season while Smalley posted one of his career-best seasons.

Presented in partnership with TC Media Now.

That 1979 team was in 1st place in late May, only 2 GB on September 1st, and tied for 2nd and only 3 GB with a week to go on September 22. A 6 game losing streak sealed their fate at that point, but that sounds like a forgotten pennant race in Twins history.
