Tim Laudner

Laudner was the Southern League MVP in 1981, hitting .284 with 42 HR at Orlando to earn a September promotion to the Twins. He was the Twins starting catcher in 1982, then shared with job with Dave Engle and Mark Salas until 1987 when he became the starter once again. A strong righthanded batter, Laudner hit only .191 in 1987, but he made the AL All-Star Team in 1988 with a .251 average and 13 HR and doubled in his only at-bat in the All-Star Game
