Tony Oliva Booking Agent Details

Tony Oliva is considered one of the greatest Minnesota Twins ever after spending his entire career playing for the team from 1962-1976. He was named an All-Star in his first eight seasons (surpassing Joe Dimaggio’s record of six) and was a three-time American League batting champion. He was also named the1964 AL Rookie of the Year and won a Gold Glove Award in 1966. During his career of 1,676 games, Oliva hit .304 with 200 homers, 1,917 hits and 947 RBI.

Oliva was born in Pinar del Rio Province, Cuba and came to the United States to play baseball after a scout with the Twins was impressed with his skills. After he retired, Oliva served as a coach for the Twins. He is the only player/coach to participate in all three of the Twins’ World Series - outfielder (1965), hitting coach (1987) and bench coach (1991).

In 1991, the Twins retired his jersey #6 and, in 2000, Oliva was part of the first class inducted into the Twins Hall of Fame, joining Kent Hrbek, Kirby Puckett, Harmon Killebrew, Rod Carew and Calvin Griffith. In 2011, the Twins unveiled a statue at Target Field of Oliva. He is considered one of the best baseball players not in the Hall of Fame and came up one vote short when the Golden Era Committee considered him in 2014.
