Corey Koskie is one of the biggest fan favorites in Minnesota Twins history and one of the best players, too. His hard work and dedication have paid off with Koskie being elected to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame.
The Twins tweeted out their congrats to their former third baseman on Wednesday morning.
Twins President Dave St. Peter did the same thing from his own account.
Koskie appeared in seven seasons with the Minnesota Twins and had a hell of a career. His final Twins line includes a .280/.373/.463 line with 101 home runs and 437 RBI. After his Twins career, Koskie made stops with the Toronto Blue Jays and the Milwaukee Brewers.

Congrats to one of the best third basemen in Minnesota Twins history. We miss you so much. It’s been essentially a revolving door at third base since you’ve left. Only Danny Valencia and Trevor Plouffe have started consecutive opening days at the hot corner since your departure.
