Don had a good baseball career: .249 average, 200 HR & 646 RBI in 1,400 games with the old Senators who became the Twins in 1961, Angels, the Pilots who became the Brewers in 1970, the Senators who became the Rangers in 1972 and finally the A's.
In 1965, Don played first for the AL champ Twins and hit 23 HR with 65 RBI. He hit a HR off Don Drysdale & Sandy Koufax in the '65 Series.
He is also remembered for this:
On June 9, 1966, Mincher was part of baseball history again when he was one of five Twins who hit home runs in one inning, an American League record. The Kansas City Athletics were the victims; the others besides Mincher to go deep in the seventh inning that day were Rich Rollins, Tony Oliva, Zoilo Versalles, and Harmon Killebrew.
