1961 The Twins, formerly known as the Washington Senators before moving to Minnesota, play their first home game, losing to the 'new' expansion Washington Senators, 5-3 in front of a crowd of 24,606 at Metropolitan Stadium. The club's move to the North Star State will attract 1,256,723 fans, third best in the American League, and far better than their last season in the nation's capital, where the team drew only 743,404 fans, the worst gate in the league.
1994 At the Metrodome, switch-hitting DH Eddie Murray knocks a home run from both sides of the plate in the Indians' 10-6 win over the Twins. 'Steady Eddie' has gone deep batting both left-handed and right-handed in the same game eleven times, breaking the previous record established by Yankee legend Mickey Mantle in 1964.
