    A gesture to a suffering child wins a heart.
    I have always enjoyed listening to other fans tell their stories of why they became baseball fans in general and Twins fans in particular. I hope this prompts you to reflect and reminiscence of the joys of when you became a fan.

    I was born in Minneapolis & became a passive Twins fan when they moved here from Washington at the tender age of 7. During that first year of professional ball in the Twin Cities I became crippled with perthes bone disease and was confined to home in traction. My activity was extremely limited, my schooling was done at home with a tutor, I became a voracious reader and would not miss a Twins game on the radio. I made up my own scorecards & kept track while listening to those games (I still have most of these).
