Hall of famer Kirby Pucket dies...

Hall of Fame outfielder Kirby Puckett passed away tonight at age 44.

Puckett suffered a massive stroke on Sunday morning. "This is a sad day for the Minnesota Twins, Major League Baseball and baseball fans everywhere," Twins owner Carl Pohland said. "Kirby's impact on the Twins organization, state of Minnesota and the upper midwest is significant and goes well beyond his role in helping the Twins win two World Championships."
