That jerk tried to get the Twins contracted with his little buddy Bud. He can rot.
He was a pig.
Probably the wealthier Calvin.
Calvin brought us baseball. Calvin kept baseball here. I know it is trendy to condemn owners and past owners as it makes you feel good, but the Griffiths are nice people. Better than Boy Pohlad and his call for higher taxes and larger gov't.
It's about time this man should have been the first one to have his sculptor unveiled. Mr Griffith was one of the first true owners and real Baseball minds, if you know what I mean.Anyway thanks to the Pohlad Family for the Honor.
hope it doesn't look like shrek like kirby's
Yes, he was a pig. But he was a good businessman and deserved to see his team win. Like Bud Grant (but we all know that will never happen).
All of the other statues already look like Calvin Griffith.
why do we need a pohlad statue, let alone his wife's??
Keep your politically correct, Minnesota crap comments to yourself. Calvin was from another era. He owned that and recognized it was a short coming. I'm glad he brought baseball here and Kent Hrbek to the Twins.
