Winfield returned to Minnesota to play for his hometown Twins in 1993 and 1994, then finished his career with a short stint with the Indians in 1995. In 22 big league seasons, Winfield totaled 3,110 hits, 465 home runs and 1,833 RBI along with 12 All-Star Game selections.
“We all look up to him,” said Twins teammate Brian Harper. “As big a star as he is, he’s pretty humble.”
He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2001.
