Game 827 | July 14, 2014 | Rod Carew, Jim Kaat, Jim "Mudcat" Grant
Three of the best players in the early years of the Minnesota Twins took questions and told stories on subjects ranging from the 1965 World Series, playing for Billy Martin, and how they've stayed connected with the Twins organization. Carew told of the time he stole home only to see Harmon Killebrew ready to swing at the pitch. Killebrew saw Carew at the last minute and Carew safely stole home, one of seven such steals in 1969. The next day, Carew found a sign on his locker with a drawing of a tombstone which read, "Here lies the body of Rod Carew, lined to left by Killebrew."
