1991 Minnesota Twins Roster

From last to first was the rallying cry, as Highland Park native Jack Morris came home to Minnesota from the Detroit Tigers to lead the Twins to another World Series championship. The power pitcher of the decade, Morris didn't disappoint hometown fans with a then unheard of 10 complete games. Scott Erickson anchored the rotation with a league tying 20-victory season -- including a dozen straight wins. Second baseman Chuck Knoblauch was named Rookie-of-the-Year. Puckett was a Gold Glove winner as well as an All-Star along with pitchers Morris and Rick Aguilera. Rod Carew was elected to Cooperstown's Hall of Fame, but the post-season was the super rush for the 2,293,842 fans who filled the stands. The Toronto Blue Jays were quickly put away in the playoffs, and then the Twins faced the Atlanta Braves, another team that had finished the previous season in last place. One of the greatest World Series ever was contested as 3 games went to extra innings and five games were decided by a single run. Jack Morris gritted out the finale with a 10-inning 1-0 victory and was named World Series MVP and the Twins were World Champions for the second time in five seasons!
