Doug Corbett, Sal Butera
The Twins finished 19 games out of first in 1980, drawing only 769,000 fans in their next-to-last season at Metropolitan Stadium. Gene Mauch lost his job in mid season, being replaced by Johnny Goryl. Corbett was the star of the relief staff, winning eight games and saving 23, with an earned run average of 1.99. Butera was a seldom-used backup catcher who was very popular with the fans.
