All-Time Twins Halloween Team

Halloween evening is here and baseball has come to an end.
Still there's plenty to do with baseball thoughts in your head.
The Twins are off until the weather turns better.
So get out the candy and put on a sweater.
Little ghouls and goblins will come to your door.
But to them the hot stove talk is just a bore.
The new season will come in it's due time.
But for now you will have to settle for my little rhyme.
Let's look back at the creepiest Twins names from history.
Some of their hidden secrets are shrouded in mystery.
It's All Hallows Eve so let's have us some fun.
Then you can get back to dreaming about a Mauer home run.

Here is the list of the "All-Time Twins Halloween Team." I hope you enjoy!

C: Tom "Prince:" His daughter must have dressed up like a princess
1B: Ron "Coom Dog" Coomer: Haunting the night and FSN North broadcasts for many years

3B: Larry "Wolfe:" Left others howling at his .235 batting average with the Twins
SS: Denny Hoc-King "Kong:" Maybe not a monster on the field but still a monster in our hearts
OF: Carlos Gomez "Adams:" There was certainly something odd about Mr. Gomez.
