Did You Know…

The 1987 Minnesota Twins are the only World Series champions to be outscored in the regular season.  Despite scoring only 786 runs while allowing 806, the Twins finished the 1987 regular season with a record of 85-77, two games ahead of Kansas City in the AL West and then shocked the favored Detroit Tigers in the ALCS and beat St. Louis in seven games for the title.  Their .525 winning percentage is the lowest ever for a World Series champion.

My take 0 I remeber that team very well.  And they were a ton of fun to watch!!!

One response to “Did You Know…

  1. Tommy Herr was on that team. In 1985 he became the most recent player to drive in 100 runs while hitting less than 10 HR’s. I thought he did that for the 1987 team, but I was wrong and thus my point is moot. But I love these factoids you present!
