This week is Twins’ week with our podcast featuring the Minnesota Twins being released on Friday, May 27th.  On May 17th, Twins slugger Harmon Killebrew passed away.  During our podcast Ed Kasputis, Creative Director of Baseball PhD will be interviewing baseball researcher, Stew Thornley about the legacy of Harmon Killebrew.

“I saw Harmon Killebrew play in the first Major League game that I ever attended,” said Ed Kasputis.  “In my opinion, Killebrew was the greatest right handed hitter of my youth.  While he was only 5’11” he played like a giant.”

His Nickname was “Killer”

Target Field will open on April 12, 2010 as the Minnesota Twins host the Boston Red Sox.  Target Field will be the only new major league ballpark that will open this year.  Ed, Farley and Mark begin the podcast by talking about Target Field.  Ed then interviews Michael Wekesser, lead designer for the Target Field project.  Mike’s employer is the world renown sports architectural firm, Populous.

The Wise Guys then battle it out over baseball history and then Baseball Bob appears from the shadows to give us the baseball trivia question of the podcast.  What was the name of the franchise that moved to Baltimore in 1954?
