RIP - Don Mincher

Don Mincher passed away on March 4th at age 73.

Mincher was best known for his years as a slugging 1st baseman for the Twins (moving Harmon Killebrew over to 3B) and the Angels. He also played for the Seattle Pilots in 1969, and was the only all-star for the Pilots in their lone season.

After leaving Seattle, Don bounced around to several teams, including the Washington Senators. This made him one of a very few to have played for the "old" and "new" Senators.
