#692 - Randy Bush

What a card: Randy Bush continued to be a regular platoon player in right and left field and the Twins' main pinch-hitter in 1984. He tied for the American League pinch-hitting lead by going 8-for-20 (.400).

My observation on the front: That looks like a very pleasant spring training day.

More opinion from me: The Twins' red hats are 😍.

Something you might know: Bush is one of seven players to appear on both World Championship Twins teams in 1987 and 1991.

Something you might not know: Bush once hit a home run that traveled more than 200 miles. While playing in the minor leagues for Toledo during a road game against Charleston in 1982, Bush blasted a shot over the right field wall that landed on moving coal train. The train traveled 200 more miles with the ball until coming to a rest.

My observation on the back: I miss watching televised games from County Stadium.

The blog wants to speak now: The News category is updated.
