Like brother-in-law Tom Brunansky, Engle was drafted by the Angels in 1978. He went to the Twins in the 1979 trade for Rod Carew, and hit the first official home run in the Metrodome (4/6/82). Converted from outfield to catcher for 1983, he batted .305, and in 1984 was the Twins' only All-Star. Never developing good catching skills, he became a reserve, and in 1987 was Montreal's top righthanded pinch hitter. (JCA)
FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
February 3, 1979: Expecting to lose Rod Carew to free agency, the Twins trade the 7-time batting champion to the Angels for OF Ken Landreaux, 3B Dave Engle, and two pitchers.

May 16, 1983: Despite six 9th-inning runs on solo home runs by Dave Engle and Bobby Mitchell and 2-run shots by Gary Gaetti and Mickey Hatcher, the Twins lose 76 to Oakland. Engle's and Hatcher's are pinch hits.

January 16, 1986: The Twins trade 2B Tim Teufel and minor leaguer Pat Crosby to the Mets for minor leaguers Billy Beane, Bill Latham, and Joe Klink. They also trade C Dave Engle to the Tigers for IF Chris Pittaro and minor leaguer Alex Sanchez.
