    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.

    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!
