1958 The Dodgers trade Gino Cimoli to the Cardinals for former Rookie of the Year Wally Moon and right-hander Phil Paine. The club's new outfielder will quickly become known for his 'Moon Shots,' 250+ foot high fly balls to left field at LA's Memorial Coliseum, which clear the 40-foot-high screen for home runs.
2010 Outside of Target Field, the Twins unveil a statue of Harmon Killebrew, one of three sculptures, along with the larger-than-life likenesses of Kirby Puckett and Rod Carew, that the team commissioned Bill Mack to create depicting Minnesota's three Hall of Fame inductees. The 750-pound bronze Bunyanesque work of art replicates the slugger getting full extension on the swing that sent a Jim Maloney fifth-inning pitch into the bleachers at Minnesota's Metropolitan Stadium, tying the 1965 All-Star Game at 5-5.
