Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting Twins broadcaster Bert Blyleven in Anaheim. He could not have been a nicer guy. He shook my hand, asked me my name and then we talked some baseball. He went on and on about how great Target Field is and how exciting it will be to have outdoor baseball in Minnesota. He was wearing a tee shirt and hat, so down to earth. Bert just seems to love life. He was saying hello and holding a conversation with everyone who approached him. He’s the man!
It’s a crime that he is not in the Hall of Fame as a player. He absolutely deserves it.
