Kirby Puckett & Your 1987 And 1991 World Series Championship Winning Minnesota Twins

Kirby Puckett and his Minnesota Twins teammates made the most of their post-season appearances, that is for certain.

Making the playoffs just twice during the 12-season span of Kirby’s career, the Twins captured the prize in each nail-biting contest!!

And Kirby was at the center of it all!!!  In 14 World series games, Kirby amassed a batting average of .308.  He collected 7 RBI while scoring 9 runs in those games – and most importantly, he was on the winning side of both match-ups when it was all done.

  1. Game 6 of the 1991 series was one of the greatest things I witnessed during my childhood. I was 10 at the time and I still remember how exciting that game was. Puck was always my favorite player, and always would be after that game.

  2. The Braves were the same way. Both were unlikely world series competitors, probably not even the most talented teams, but they both won because they played the hardest. Not sure if that was the only time there was a “worst to first” world series, but it was enjoyable.
