MLB legend Dave Winfield speaks in Aberdeen

Posted: Updated:

 The name Dave Winfield brings to mind baseball glory from yesterday.

 A lot of us grew up watching him play and tonight, he was in Aberdeen.

 Erik Thorstenson was master of ceremonies tonight in the Hub City for a fundraiser for the "Boys and Girls Club".

 That event featured Winfield as the keynote speaker.

 Winfield grew up in Minnesota and says whenever he's asked to do something for kids, he always tried to do what he can. "Got a call to come to Aberdeen...actually last year..and they said boys and girls clubs...I said I'm there. We worked it out so although it's cold, blustery outside...the people have warm hearts you know...small town with a big heart."

 And this is interesting: there is a connection between Thor and Dave Winfield: Thor met him when he was about 12 years old and got his autograph.
