Kirby Pucket Dies
One of my favorite players as a kid. Was sad to see his career end because of disease, but he had a great one.

He was my hero as a kid. Baseball being much in my life when I was young and growing up watching the twins it was natural for him to be my hero. I loved the way that man played baseball and i am definatly sad to see him die today, especially at such a young age.

You guys remember that leaping catch he made off the wall against the Braves in the '91 series?
I hated him for it then, but I'm sad to hear he's gone now.

Yes I remember that, the '91 series is still consider the best world series ever.Originally Posted by novamanms

Damn, this man was 44 ! He was a very likeable player, I would always root for him and follow his stats even though I'm not a Twins fan.

I remember that 91' catch. As a Braves fan it killed me, but what a great player he was.
He seemed to have a hard time of it after he retired. It's sad to see his life end at such a young age.
God Bless his family...and thanks for the memories!
