Bob Allison

Not only was major league football coming to Minnesota in 1961, but so was major league baseball in the form of the Washington Senators. Future Dunker Head Coach Bob Allison was the American League Rookie of the Year in 1959, and the left fielder was to be one of the early stars of the soon-to-be Minnesota Twins.

In December 2020 the St. Paul Saints accepted an invitation from the Minnesota Twins to become the parent club's Triple-A affiliate beginning with the 2021 season.
