1997 Twins Team Ball

I recently received a 1997 Twins team ball that I bought on eBay.  This wasn't a great team.  Their record was 68-94 and they were 4th place in the American League Central.  Just one game ahead of the Royals.

Sounds kind of familiar, doesn't it?

There are some interesting signatures on this ball though.  Paul Molitor, Chuck Knoblauch, Dick Such and Todd Walker are the ones I was interested in.

I got this ball for less than the price of a new, unsigned major league ball, so this isn't going to pay the for my retirement.

 Eddie Guardado, Rick Aguilera, Mike Trombley, Greg Colbrunn, Frankie Rodriguez, Chuck Knoblauch, Rich Becker

 Denny Hocking, Todd Walker, Terry Steinbach, Greg Swindell, Matt Lawton, Pat Meares

 Roberto Kelly, Todd Ritchie, Marty Cordova, Paul Molitor, Ron Coomer, Greg Myers, Ron Gardenhire

Bob Tewksbury, Rick Stelmaszek, Brad Radke, Chris Latham, Scott Ullger, Gregg Olson, Dick Such

There were several signatures that I couldn't identify, but the great members over at helped me out in no time.
