Kirby Puckett

When I was a kid growing up and playing sports it was hard to find heroes that looked like I did. Being short and stocky, the only dude that fit the bill for me was Kirby Puckett. He's the reason I was a Minnesota Twins fan. He was the reason I watched and played baseball. Kirby died today of a stroke at the age of 45. I have never seen another athelete Kirby's side representing and might not see another. Rest in Peace Kirby.
