I ordered this book for my husband, and myself. We both loved it! The pictures are terrific! There are many views of the field, and the pictures of the players are really good too. The memories that this book brought back to us were really special; everything was just how we remembered it.
The articles and quips are enjoyable as well. The author, Bob Showers, did an excellent job.

He also wrote another book,"Minnesota North Stars: History and Memories with Lou Nanne."

Numerous times I have looked at, or bought a book, with the anticipation of seeing pictures that will bring back memories. Numerous times I have been disappointed because of the lack of pictures, or the pictures themselves aren't views that one would really recognize. Not only does this book have a lot of pictures, it includes pictures that are unique. This book would be enjoyed by anyone who attended a Twins game at the Met.

I was at the game when there was the bomb scare. We had to leave the stadium, stay in the parking lot, and I remember my dad telling me that if I saw an explosion in the sky that I was to duck under the dashboard!I'd sure like to know why we couldn't just leave immediately.:)I found it interesting that this event was covered in the book, and there were pictures. I found it even more interesting that there were a lot of people who didn't even leave the stadium! Who knew?! I guess there are some things that always remain a mystery.:)

Enjoy the book!
Nancy B.

bought this as a gift for my dad and he loves it. he is a sports buff and can tell me just about everything about any player in the book. he went through the book and was at a game or 2 and that gave him a real personal appeal to the book. hopefully going to spring training and a buckley tour with my dad in the next few years

A delightful nostalgia trip through Twins Territory, with all kinds of wonderful tidbits about individual Twins players and tons and tons of great photographs. This is a vignette book, not a stats book, though there are a few numbers (just year-by-year records and team leaders). My only wish for improvement would be for more color photos; most of the pics are black and white. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and would recommend it to anyone who loved the Twins at the Met in the 60s and 70s.

I purchased this for a gift for my brother but also enjoyed it myself. You have to be a certain age to appreciate this but if you are it is great.
