Last week we heard from Clyde Doepner, Curator of the Minnesota Twins Baseball Club. Clyde has been with the Twins for 57 years, and has a vast knowledge of baseball lore, and was even a player himself formerly. He brought many uniform pieces to show us the process for collecting this memorabilia. A hologram is attached to every saved item to authenticate the item. He explained about #42 that was retired in memory of Jackie Robinson. He reminisced about the growth of staff from a few under Cal Griffith to the current front office of 218 people today. Very interesting speaker, and thanks to John Ashmead for arranging this event.


On a personal note, this is probably my last Rich-O-Gram as Deanna Wahlen has agreed to publish this communication for 2023-2024. She agreed to start early as I need to have vascular surgery on 9/12 and will not be at the 13th meeting. John BJOSTAD
