The Metrodome is obviously the perfect place for a public memorial of the greatest Minnesota Twin who ever lived. I haven't seen any other player conduct himself with more dignity on the field than Puckett. He was one of the best baseball ambassadors of all time.

I completely agree with Jaydawg. Puckett was a class act and a great ballplayer. I am still sore over how he lead the Twins to the AL penant and World Series title in 1987 over a deeper Detroit Tigers team. What a special guy. It is sad the way things went downhill for him with his health following his playing days.

A great player-great ambassador for baseball-we should be looking at him versus the Bonds crap.

To be fair to Bonds, HE was never accused of threatening his wife nor was he taken to court for sexual assualt or accused of sexual harrassment.

I'm very sad about Kirby's passing...but let's not make this guy out to be a saint just because he died too young.
