Glenn Adams arrived in Minnesota in 1977 and started hitting immediately.  Playing primarily against right-handed pitching, he crushed the ball to a .338/.376/.468 slash line, including a Twins record eight RBI in one game against the White Sox on June 26 (a record that was tied by Randy Bush in 1989, but still has not been bested).  The professional hitter spent five of his eight big league seasons in a Twins uniform, finishing with a .281 career average in Minnesota.  After retiring, he spent over 20 seasons as a minor league manager and hitting coach.
