About Me

   Hi, my name is Troy Larson from the state of Minnesota in Twins territory. I’m a big Minnesota Twins fan with opinions on baseball especially when it comes to the Twins. One other note, I’ve never seen a Twins game. The reason is I’m blind. I’ve been wanting to blog my thoughts for a few years now, but have never really gotten around to it until now. and one other thing, I’ve a wealth of baseball knowledge. I could tell you who won the World Series every year from the 1920’s and maybe even further back.

One other thing you want to know about me. I’ve a passion for talking about baseball especially when it comes to the Twins. Although I’ve a dream of becoming a radio announcer, the best thing to do right now is to do a Twins blog. and not only that, I periodically host a show called Troy’s Twins Chat. You can find the archives here.

With this blog, I’ll be discussing various topics relating to the Twins. From time to time, we’ll venture into other Major League happenings. This should be a fun experience and who knows where this might lead. Enjoy and be sure to follow me twitter!

    Hi Troy,

    Baseball is a wonderful sport!

    I remember in 1961 when my brother and I had just gotten our first transistor radios. We went to the local park, tuned our radios to WCCO and listenet to the very first Twins game. It was a beautiful sunny day – perfect for baseball.

    Harmon Killebrew, Bob Allison, Camilo Pascual, and all the Twins of that era were our heros. They were bigger than life, and gave us the magic, excitment, and color that is baseball, brought to us by the very talented announcers of that day – Ray Scott, Halsey Hall, and Herb Carneal.

    People talk about comfort foods and how nice they are…to me baseball is a comfort sport and makes life more worthwhile!

    • I think that baseball was made for radio and the Twins have been blessed to have good announcers over their 50+ years history. Hopefully the new announcer Cory Provus and Dan Gladden can continue that trend of having good announcers. Baseball is dull unless you’re a good announcer.
