Tony Oliva: 3 time Batting Champion, AL Hits Leader 5 times, Doubles leader 4 times, 4 time top 5 for Al MVP (should have won the 1965 MVP), ROY 8 time All Star whose career was cut short by injury. He had a stretch of 6 seasons in a pitching dominated circuit that would rival any during that time. A catalyst in late 1960's for a strong Twins team reaching the playoffs 3 times and advancing the WS once.
