Happy “Number Forty-Juan Berenguer” Day

Senor Smoke

Senor Smoke

Today is a special day for the SFRC.  Happy “Number Forty-Juan….Berenguer” Day.  40 days until first pitch.

If you don’t get the reference….Back in 1987 the Twins had #40 Juan Berenger and #41 Jeff Reardon.

 

At the time, Jeff Reardon was one of the premier closers in baseball.  When it was time for relief, you’d hear Bob Casey introduce the new pitcher.  It would go one of two ways….

 

Option 1: “Now entering the game for the Minnesota Twins, number forty-one, JEFF REARDON” at which point Twins fans knew they had a win.

 

Option 2: “Now entering the game for the Minnesota Twins, number forty-Juan… Berenger” at which point Twins fans knew it was going to be interesting.

 

Happy Number Forty-Juan Berenguer Day.
