1984 Minnesota Twins Roster

The Minnesota Twins continued to retool as Calvin Griffith traded veteran Gary Ward to the Texas Rangers for Mike Smithson, John Butcher and Sam Sorce, but there was favorable news for Twins fans. Griffith wanted out of the sport, and found a willing buyer in Twin Cities banker Carl Pohlad, who purchased a majority interest in the team for $35 million at mid-season. Fans started to see a future for the team and flocked to the Metrodome, 1,598,692 strong. The team didn't disappoint, surging to first place in the final weeks of the season. But the team faltered, including a game they lost 11-10 when the bullpen couldn't hold a 10-0 Twins lead. In May, a young outfielder out of the Chicago Projects was called up to the Twins -- Kirby Puckett. Dave Engle was the Twins lone All-Star representative and the year celebrated the election of Harmon Killebrew to the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame.
