MINNEAPOLIS - As the Minnesota Twins prepare for their upcoming season, they’ve added two more to their Hall of Fame: Joe Nathan and Jerry Bell.
Nathan spent seven out of his 16 seasons pitching in the MLB in the Twin Cities. He was a six-time AL All-Star, four of those times with the Twins, made 260 saves as a Twin while posting 47 saves in 2009, and has three AL Central-Divisional Championships.
Bell was the Twins president from 1987 until 2002, and has two World Series Championships with the organization. During his time in the Twin Cities, he helped develop and construct Target Field and CenturyLink Sports Complex, and helped the Twins set the American League attendance record in 1988 with 3 million fans.
Nathan and Bell join the rest of the 33 former Twins players, managers, coaches and off-field personnel who have helped contribute to the ball club.
