1971 Minnesota Twins Roster

After 10 seasons of drawing one million or more fans, the Minnesota Twins attendance fell to 940,858. It was a tough summer, Tony Oliva started the season on the disabled list with the first of many knee injuries that would eventually curtail his career. Oliva did end up leading the league in hitting with a .337 average and Harmon Killebrew hit his 500th career homerun on August 10th at Met Stadium off Baltimore Orioles starter Mike Cuellar, while leading the league with 119 runs-batted-in. Jim Kaat once again won a Gold Glove for his fielding and starter Rod Carew was joined at the All-Star game festivities by Killebrew, Oliva, Jim Perry and shortstop Leo Cardenas.
