Hall of Famer Kirby Puckett Dies at 45

By DAVE CAMPBELL
AP Sports Writer

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Kirby Puckett died Monday, a day after the Hall of Fame outfielder had a stroke at his Arizona home. He was 45.

Puckett died at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix. He had been in intensive care since having surgery at another hospital following his stroke Sunday morning.

The bubbly, barrel-shaped Puckett carried the Twins to World Series titles in 1987 and 1991 before his career was cut short by glaucoma. His family, friends and former teammates gathered at the hospital Monday.

Puckett was given last rites and died in the afternoon, hospital spokeswoman Kimberly Lodge said.

"On behalf of Major League Baseball, I am terribly saddened by the sudden passing of Kirby Puckett," commissioner Bud Selig said. "He was a Hall of Famer in every sense of the term.

I grew up as a Twins fan and Kirby Puckett was one of my all-time favorite baseball players, and a hero. May he rest in peace.

What an awesome first name. And it's so weird to see a player die that I've watched for-ever./

Who doesn't?

I'll make sure to attend your funeral and point out to the people who loved you that you may have made some mistakes in your life also. Besides, Kirby was aquitted.

He was the reason I watched baseball when I was a kid. I was terrible at it myself and actually couldn't stand to watch it on the merrits of the game itself. But I thought the world of him and I watched baseball and was interested in baseball while he was playing. When he was forced to retire due to glaucoma and the whole baseball players strike, I have never watched a single solitary baseball game since. And I probably never will again either now.

He was found not guilty. Most likely just a case of somebody trying to take advantage of an opportunity to get money from a high-profile athlete.

He was a great guy. People always talked about how he was great with kids. When kids saw him, they would go to him right away. He was a short little fat guy with a huge smile, so kids thought he was funny. And I saw Dave Winfield on TV yesterday saying that he would always be asking players to participate in his charity events, which I believe were for childrens' hospitals.
