Did you know that Justin Morneau hit 221 home runs in a Twins uniform, the third most after the franchise relocated to Minnesota ? Do you know what two Twins hit more? [#2. Answer | #1. Answer ]

Did you know that Justin Morneau hit thirty-or-more home runs in 2006 , 2007 , and 2009 , leaving only one player in Minnesota Twins franchise history ahead of him, Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew , who had ten such seasons?

Did you know that Justin Morneau was hitting .208 at the end of April in 2006 , but raised his average 36 points by the end of May, then another 44 points by the end of June, then another 33 points by the end of July? That meteoric push combined with career high totals in runs scored, hits, doubles, home runs, RBIs, and sacrifice flies helped him win the Most Valuable Player Award , the first MVP ever won in the American League by a Canadian born player !

Did you know that when Justin Morneau hit forty-seven doubles in 2008 , it was the most during a single season by a Minnesota Twins player? That same year, Morneau appeared in 163 games, the most in franchise history since 1967 , when Harmon Killebrew also played in 163 games, and Cesar Tovar set the team record with 164 games!


Justin Morneau is one of several hundred players from Canada , but when he drove in 130 runs in 2006 , he tied the record for most RBIs in a season by a Canadian , set previously by Larry Walker in 1997 !
