Game 873 | January 27, 2017
Byron Buxton, Jason Castro, Marney Gellner
In conjunction with the annual TwinsFest celebration the team brought two of its newest players to Dunkers. Jason Castro was signed in the off-season to bolster the catching position. He worked well with the team’s young pitchers during the year and contributed at the plate with 10 homeruns, 47 RBIs and a .242 batting average. Buxton, a highly touted minor leaguer and former number one draft choice, went on to a breakout season. He won a Rawlings Gold Glove and was named the Wilson Defensive Player of the Year in Major League Baseball with his play in center field. He also hit 16 homeruns, drove in 51 runs and hit .253 while stealing a team-high 29 bases in 30 attempts. Marney Gellner from Fox Sports did the interviews.
