NICK PUNTOGame 689 | January 29, 2007 | Jesse Crain, Nick Punto
In conjunction with TwinsFest, the team's annual winter celebration at the Metrodome, two members of the 2007 team visited with Dunkers. Crain, a hard-throwing relief pitcher; joined the team in 2004 and missed most of the 2007 season after having rotator cuff surgery. Switch-hitting infielder Punta, acquired in a trade with Philadelphia for pitcher Eric Milton, had a poor hitting year in 2007, but came back to claim the starting shortstop position in 2008.
