Tom Lawless And The Famous Bat Throw

When I go back home to Minnesota and Wisconsin for Christmas or some other holiday it's always a chance to pick up and post some Minnesota Twins cards. This time around though I found an autographed card from an opposing player that many Twins fans will remember from the 1987 World Series.

Although Tom Lawless didn't have a huge statistical impact on the game he will be forever remembered for the very, very slow walk up the first base line after hitting a home run in Game 4 of the World Series against the Twins. And then there was the bat toss which is so bad ass it's frequently mentioned as the best of all time.
