Dwight Siebler found success in the minors in 1959 and into the early 1960s, averaging more than 1 strikeout per inning in over 400 innings pitched. That success in the minors earned him his first call up in 1963. Siebler went on to play in 48 games for the Twins, including 8 starts and 2 complete games.
One of the high points of Twins’ history was the 1965 World Series Team. Some of the all-time great Twins led the team to the series against the LA Dodgers, including Harmon Killebrew, Zoilo Versalles, and Tony Oliva. Though he played in 30 games in AAA and 7 games for the Twins, due to roster rules, Siebler didn’t actually get to play in the World Series.
Siebler moved between AAA and the majors from 1963-1967 and played against legends like Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, and Carl Yastrzemski. Anyone getting ready for baseball will love stories about facing the legends of baseball and suiting up with some of the all-time great Twins.
