At the end of any year a moment of reflection is valuable. As the sun sets on 2023 the Minnesota Twins have a lot to reflect on, and fans have more than a few amazing moments to look back on and smile at.
The ups and downs of a grueling season takes its toll; however, in the end a lot went right this year. From a historic inning at Yankee Stadium to rookies shocking the league, and bringing playoff baseball back to the city of Minneapolis just to name a few!
Let's send the year off by looking back at some of the high points of the Twins season that we are still smiling about so many months later.
A signature moment for Carlos Correa
It took a while, but June 13th finally gave Twins fans a signature Carlos Correa moment. The Twins were playing the Milwaukee Brewers and Minnesota had already scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game.
With a runner on first, Correa hit a game winning two-run home run off the facing of the second deck in left field. The Twins won 7-5 that night! It was a team effort to complete the comeback.
The win got the Twins back above .500 with a 34-33 record. Prior to hitting that home run Correa was 0-for-4 on the night and in a pretty gnarly slump. All of the frustration he had was taken out on that ball that traveled 408 feet. It was also the kickstart of a 10-game home stand for the Twins and you cannot write a much better start than that.
