1966 Minnesota Twins Roster
The World Series season was followed by a major letdown for the Minnesota Twins club, finishing 9 games behind the Baltimore Orioles. Attendance slipped to 1,259,374 but Jim Kaat came on huge for the final half of the season, finishing with a league-leading 25 victories, as well as winning another Gold Glove. Tony Oliva was rewarded with a Gold Glove for his work in right field, as well as a starting position on the All-Star team. Kaat, Harmon Killebrew and Earl Battey filled out the American League All-Star squad. The high-point of the season was June 9th, when five Twins homered in the 7th inning of a game against the Kansas City Athletics (Killebrew, Oliva, Zoilo Versalles, Rich Rollins and Don Mincher).
