Game 242 | April 23, 1976 | Butch Wynegar, Don McMahon
Wynegar had just turned 20 when he made his major league debut as the Twins catcher in 1976. He earned All-Star and Rookie of the Year honors that year and is best remembered by Twins fans for the television commercial where he said, "I like this game so much I'd play for free." Tight-fisted owner Calvin Griffith smiled and said, "I like this kid." McMahon was the pitching coach in 1976 and 1977.
