Ron Gardenhire Honored for 1,000 Wins

Last Saturday, Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire won his 1,000 game, defeating the Cleveland Indians, 7-3.

Before Wednesday’s game, Gardenhire was honored by the Twins in a pregame ceremony. He became the 60th manager with 1,000 wins and the 10th to win that many games with one team.

The longtime Twins manager was given a video tribute featuring Tom Kelly, Joe Mauer, Doug Mientkiewicz, Torii Hunter, Michael Cuddyer, Corey Koskie, and among others. Gardenhire also received a humidor with 1,000 Rocky Patel cigars.

He’s been in Minnesota since 2002 and was American League manager of the year in 2010.

In other Twins news, Oswaldo Arcia was placed on the disabled list after soreness in his wrist. Darin Mastroianni was in Thursday’s starting lineup in Arcia’s place.

Minnesota acquired infielder Eduardo Nunez from the New York Yankees for pitcher Miguel Sulbaran. Nunez was a career .267 hitter with 48 stolen bases in 59 attempts in New York.
