STAN WILLIAMSGame 181 | January 19, 1970| Harmon Killebrew, Bob Stein, Stan Williams
Seeking to improve their pitching, the Twins after the 1969 season packaged Dean Chance, Bob Miller, Graig Nettles and Ted Uhlaender in a trade with Cleveland for Williams and Luis Tiant. Williams rewarded them with a 10-1 record as a relief pitcher: Killebrew was coming off an MVP season in which he hit 49 home runs with 140 RBIs while batting .276. Stein, another future Dunker; was an All-American defensive end for the Gophers in 1967 and 1968, and played six years in the NFL with Kansas City, Los Angeles, San Diego and Minnesota.
