Polyester Minnesota Twins jersey. The tail label 771 indicates that it belonged to the first set of uniforms issued in 1977. The jersey formerly had the number 8 sewn onto its front and back. Based on the size and year of the jersey, its wearer was likely the outfielder and designated hitter Glenn Adams.
The Twins play their first game of the 2013 season today against the Detroit Tigers at Minneapolis’ Target Field. Expected temperature at game time: 33 degrees. This is the earliest outside Twins home opener. Play ball!
