Twins win the 1991 World Series

The 2010 World Series is upon us and for Twins fans that can bring back a lot of memories.

Earlier last week I took some time to look at Jack Morris and his performance in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series (Debate: Jack Morris's Game 7 vs. other postseason performances).

Today is the 19th anniversary of that game and the conclusion of the '91 Series.

To many it was the crowning moment in one of the greatest, if not the greatest, World Series ever played.  There were multiple extra-inning games, heroics for both teams, and in the end two games at the Metrodome that decided the outcome.  

Here are a few links to other stories that look at the 1991 World Series and its place in history. 

-Jim Caple of ESPN writes that the 1991 World Series "had it all."

-Baseball Almanac gives a look at the box score from Game 7 gives a summary of the series, some video clips, and, of course, a time line

-A "Where are they Now?" Article about Gene Larkin, the man that drove in the winning run in Game 7

As a Twins fan, it is fun to look back on this day in Twins history.
