Kirby



Few people are known only by their first name. Kirby was one, at least in Minnesota.

Word just came out that Puckett died tonight at age 44 after suffering a massive stroke yesterday.

Even non-baseball fans in Minnesota have a soft spot for Kirby. You couldn't watch him play ball without smiling. Short and chubby-looking, Puckett reminded many of a fire hydrant.
