I'm so shocked right now. I haven't watched a baseball game in years. Haven't thought about Kirby Puckett in years. He was huge here when I was a kid.

RIP Kirby. Thanks for making baseball in Minnesota so much fun.

The Twins were my second favorite team for many years, after my Yankees, and I spent so many hours watching and enjoying Kirby Puckett as a baseball player. He played with a joy and enthusiasm that cannot be faked. He had great skills. And I will never forget how he won Game 6 of the 1991 World Series, how excited his teammates were, how he embraced manager Tom Kelly...

This news has made me sadder than I ever thought possible. May Kirby Puckett rest in peace.

I am in shock. Although I'm not a huge fan of baseball these days, Kirby Puckett was one of my heroes. A true sportsman. Today is a sad day for sports, and especially, of course, baseball, and his team, the Minnesota Twins.

I remember Kirby when he was one of the best clutch players in baseball. When Minnesota won their first World Series, it was an amazing achievement and incredible World Series. He was a quirky athlete with a unique physique who got the job done. Too bad his career ended prematurely as a result of glaucoma.

RIP Kirby.

There are alot of overpaid lazy ballplayers who could learn alot from Kirby, one player who gave 110 % every time he took the field. Its too bad his career ended early, I think that contributed to him letting his health go to waste.
Its hard sometimes to fathom that a guy you watched play ball for 12 years, suddenly passes & then you realize he's only 44 YO.

Shocking....RIP Kirby
