BEFORE FAME

In addition to earning varsity letters in baseball at Itawamba Agricultural High School in Fulton, MS, Brian was awarded letters in basketball, football and golf.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Brian’s 40 home runs as a second baseman in 2016 are the most in American League history and the third most in MLB history behind only Davey Johnson (42 in 1973) and Rogers Hornsby (42 in 1922). His 42 home runs (two as DH) were the most by a Twin since Harmon Killebrew’s 49 in 1969. He and Killebrew are the only Twins ever with 40 or more home runs in a single season. Brian has 100-or-more RBI in three straight seasons (112-2014; 101-2015; 100-2016) and is just the second Twin to score 100 runs in consecutive seasons (Chuck Knoblauch, 1995-97). His 24-game hit streak in 2016 was the longest by a Twin since Brian Harper’s 25-game streak in 1990.

FUN FACT

In the 2015 All-Star Game, Brian entered the game as pinch hitter in the eighth inning and homered off Pittsburgh’s Mark Melancon. He became just the 16th player ever to homer in his first All-Star Game at-bat and third Twin to ever homer in an All-Star Game, joining Kirby Puckett (1993) and Harmon Killebrew (1961, 1965 and 1971).
