From the Ruthian blasts of Harmon Killebrew and Kirby Puckett to a successful brand of “small ball,” the Twins have fielded competitive teams at Metropolitan Stadium, the Metrodome and Target Field.

But prior to its arrival in 1961, the team also had a storied past in Washington that included Walter Johnson, the greatest pitcher of the Deadball Era, if not all time. Sports historian Stew Thornley highlights the lesser-known events in the club’s history, from the area’s attempts to lure a major-league team to town in the 1950s to then-owner Calvin Griffith’s campaign to regionally rename the team.

He also pays tribute to the rich heritage of baseball before the Twins, marked by minor-league teams such as the St. Paul Saints and Minneapolis Millers, which produced future Hall of Famers Willie Mays, Duke Snider, Ted Williams and Roy Campanella.
