A part-time catcher for eleven seasons, Bill Bergen played in 947 major league games, gettting 3,028 at-bats.  In those at-bats, he compiled a batting line of .170/.194/.201.  He must have been a tremendous defender.

There do not appear to be any players with connections to the Minnesota Twins who were born on this day.
