Minnesota Twins Hall of Famer: César Tovar (1965-1972)

This one is probably the one that’s been the longest time coming. César Tovar is one of the best utility players in team history, and he was a key member of the Twins in the late 1960’s.

Tovar was the first and only player to play all nine positions in one game in Twins history, and he played second baseman, shortstop, third baseman, and all three outfield spots though his eight years in a Minnesota uniform.

He ranks seventh in team history in steals, twenty-second in WAR, twenty-eighth in triples and in the Top 35 in almost every category and finished in the Top-25 of MVP voting five times.

On top of that, Tovar was important to the team, and up until his passing was important to the community. His family will be more than excited for this honor as well.
