Twins' 2B for most of their AL Championship 1965 season, but he hit only .196 and
was released before the WS.

»June 16, 1962: A limping Mickey Mantle returns after a one-month absence to crack a 3-run pinch-hit home run in the 8th to give New York a 9–7 lead against Cleveland. The Tribe comes back to win it 10–9 in the 9th on Jerry Kindall's 2-run home run. Cleveland now leads the 3rd-place Yankees by a game and will sweep the 4-game series.
