Kirby Puckett, the Hall of Fame outfielder of the Minnesota Twins, acclaimed for his sunny personality and his passion for baseball, died Monday at a hospital in Phoenix. He was 45.
There are very few players who enjoyed baseball as much as Kirby Puckett obviously did. He played with exuberance and skill, turning the Twins around him into winners in addition to his own Herculean efforts that carried the team to two world championships. It was tragic when he was forced out of the game by blindness due to glaucoma, more so that he has passed away so young.
Wherever there’s a game, Kirby Puckett will be on the field.
