Bert Blyleven pitched for the Angels and Twins and is wearing a Minnesota cap on his newly installed plaque in Cooperstown. He threw out the first pitch before the Halo-Twinkie contest Tuesday night in Anaheim. Earlier that day, reporter Dave Mayorga, aka Blast21Dave, got two minutes with Torii Hunter at Ralph's Market in Anaheim and got the Angels and Twins great to (reluctantly) confirm which cap he would wear if he is ever elected to the Hall of Fame.
Torii also spoke about his love of playing dominoes in the clubhouse and spoke on behalf of the Pepsi MAX Field of Dreams.
