On Saturday, watch as Brooks Robinson, Hoyt Wilhem, and other members of the 1959 Baltimore Orioles square off against the 1962 Minnesota Twins and their slugging tandem of Harmon Killebrew and Don Mincher in an Old Timers Day game at Metropolitan Stadium in Minnesota. This exhibition contest is the first of a trio of SP78 Replay games to be played this weekend, and will preceed the regularly-scheduled AL game between the Orioles and Twins, which will feature a pitching matchup of O’s wins leader Scott McGregor (14-3) and the Twins’ Gary Serum (9-3).
Both games at Minnesota will be played Saturday, while Sunday’s pairing of the Red Sox and Royals will wrap up the weekend slate of SP78 games. Mike Torrez (6-7) will take the hill for Boston, while Paul Splittorff (10-6) will get the nod for Kansas City.
All three games will be televised nationally on C-SPAN, your Cable Statis Pro Action Network.
