GARY GAETTIGame 296 | April 28, 1982 | Dave Engle, Gary Gaetti, Kent Hrbek, Ron Washington
It was clear by the early 1980s that the Twins were stuck in a deep rut. The team made the decision to "go young" and brought many of its top prospects rapidly to the major league team. The 1982 team lost a club-record 102 games (winning only 60), but the stage was set for future success. Hrbek, in his first full season, hit. 301 with 23 home runs and 92 RBIs. Gaetti had 25 homers and 84 RBIs.
