1983 Minnesota Twins Roster

Of all the Minnesota Twins managers, you had to love Billy Gardner. He was handed the reigns of a team under-funded, full of players who needed a tad more seasoning in the minors, and roster spots filled with aging veterans or competent role players. During the off-season, Gardner would work in a meat packing plant in his native New England, and during the season he lived (during home games) in a cheap motel room ('we'll keep the light on!') with a bed, a television and an in-room fridge to keep him company. He lost 10 fewer games in his second season and managed the foundation of the Twins future, but a losing team in a new stadium didn't draw the fans. Only 858,939 went thru the turnstiles as Gary Ward was the lone All-Star.
