  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • What Billy Martin relished more than anything, was confrontation with the front office. Calvin Griffith [the Twins' owner] would say, "Come on up to the office anytime except I take a little nap between 5:00 and 5:30," because he was at the ballpark all day. Five after 5:00, Billy would be knocking on his door. He was defiant.
      —JIM KAAT, former Twins pitcher
