Tony Oliva made his Major League debut with the Minnesota Twins in 1962.  Now 60 years later, "Tony O” is still in Minnesota and still loved for his infectious smile and graciousness.  He’s also the newest member of the Baseball Hall of Fame, a long overdue honor for one of the game’s greatest ever players.   

As a player, Tony was a wonderful combination of power, speed, glove work, and a buoyant and effervescent personality.  He won American League Batting titles in his first two seasons, an accomplishment no player had done before or since. Twice he finished 2nd in the Most Valuable Player voting, both times helping lead the Twins to the post season.  When injuries changed his game, Tony finished his career as a designated hitter and five times led the league in base hits.  Following his 15-year playing career, Tony moved to the coaching staff where he mentored the likes of Kirby Puckett.   His #6 was retired by the Twins in 1991 and he remains one of the most beloved athletes in Minnesota sports history.
