1980 Minnesota Twins Roster
Gene Mauch couldn't get thru his fifth season with the Minnesota Twins and called it quits in August, replaced by John Goryl who was a journeyman infielder and minor league manager for the Griffith organization. A surge brought the Twins to a third place finish, but the fans stayed away in droves. Final attendance figures brought only 769,206 fans through the turnstiles. Ken Landreaux was the lone All-Star and Mike Marshall, with unfounded claims of discrimination for his Union activities, was released mid-season. Gary Ward hit for the cycle against the Milwaukee Brewers.
