Minnesota Twins: The Talented and Classy Tony Oliva

The Minnesota Twins have been fortunate to have many international players grace their lineups. This has included a bevy of dynamic individuals who have captivated the fans and who have been an integral part of the team’s success.

To commemorate Hispanic History Month, we would like to celebrate a Twins legend. A person who was a talented player, a tireless ambassador of the game, and a wonderful person. I give you the great: Tony Oliva.


Pedro Oliva Lopez Hernandez Oliva was born in Pinar del Rio Cuba, on July 20, 1938.
