Twins to have a weekend celebration of the 1965 World Series Team: It will be a bittersweet 40th Reunion as some of the more popular member of the team have passed. Earl Battey and Bobby Allison are among those who will be missed. It was a great series agfainst the Dodgers. One that went 7 games. If today's media coverage were around back then, this series would have gone down as one of the all time best. Allison's game saving catch and Koufax pithcing game 7 on 2 days rest, are just two of the highlights.

Amazing world series. Bob Allison was a great man. Very good ball player as well.

Hey daddi, I can't open your link. I keep getting "page can't be opened" type error. Is it just me? (Which is possible)

Thanks, hotchie, but it requires registration. Nicer when it doesn't.
