Ron Gardenhire, Dan Gladden, César Tovar named to Twins Hall of Fame

The Minnesota Twins have announced their three newest members of the team’s Hall of Fame:. Gardenhire began his managerial career as the Minnesota skipper in 2002 after the retirement of fellow MINHOFer Tom Kelly. He helmed the team for the next 13 seasons, leading the team to six American League Central crowns while being named AL Manager of the Year in 2010. The Twins cratered in Gardy’s final four seasons heading the team, finishing in the division basement three times, but Gardy’s leadership during the playoff seasons of the late aughts should be remembered more. He finished his Twins tenure with a record of 1,068 wins and 1,039 losses.
