The Minnesota Historical Society preserves and makes available a wide range of materials chronicling Minnesota's history and culture. The goals of the Collections Department are to collect and preserve; provide access and interpretation; and engage in education and outreach. This blog is a tool to share these stories and let people know what is happening in the department.
Yesterday Tony Oliva was (finally!) inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.
Here we share a few items from our collection relating to his amazing career, including a book he wrote in 1973; a photo of him in his Twins uniform in the 1960s; and a bobblehead of him from 2000.
Congratulations and well-deserved, Tony O!
