Player Biography
Kirby Puckett was beloved by teammates and opponents alike. A gregarious player with a passion for baseball, Puckett led the Minnesota Twins to two World Series titles with clutch hitting and defense. He was a 10-time All-Star and won six Gold Glove awards, hitting .318 lifetime. Puckett’s 12-year career was prematurely ended due to irreversible retina damage in his right eye. “In 1991, playing against him in the World Series, if we had to lose and if one person basically was the reason, you don’t mind it being Kirby Puckett,” Atlanta Braves pitcher John Smoltz said of the Twins iconic hero.
