Comments on: Top 40 Minnesota Twins: #25 Brian Harper http://aarongleeman.com/2011/03/02/top-40-minnesota-twins-25-brian-harper/ Baseball news, insight and analysis from Aaron Gleeman Mon, 02 Mar 2015 15:49:00 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.1 By: Bob Laughlin http://aarongleeman.com/2011/03/02/top-40-minnesota-twins-25-brian-harper/comment-page-1/#comment-37163 Fri, 20 Sep 2013 05:42:00 +0000 http://aarongleeman.com/?p=33560#comment-37163 Dear SLP: Do you happen to recall WHEN Harper had the elbow injury. I’m researching ballplayers from the late 70s to early 90s. Have seen reference to BH injuring his arm but can’t find any specifics. Exact year would be great. Minors or majors? The team he was with at the time could pin it down. Sincere thanks if you recall.

His testimony of coming back after elbow injury is something that should be publicized for more to hear.

When I was a kid, I modeled my swing after his, and I always tried to get number 12.

He was originally the personal catcher for Allen Anderson. Then slowly he began to play himself into a bigger role. I

I don’t think he was ever one of TK’s guys, and when he left, I seem to remember there being some bad blood.

Just think, in today’s market he could have gotten himself a 8-year $184 million contract with the twins for those stats

But a quick question, where do you find images or videos from the 91 series (like Lonnie Smith running over Harper above)? I’ve been looking for the Hrbek-Gant leg whip, but I can’t find an image or video anywhere, it’s presumably MLB copyrighted. Is there a special place to go to see or use images like that? Just curious.
