MINNEAPOLIS -- Bert Blyleven's No. 28 will never be worn by a Twins player again.
The Twins announced Thursday night during their annual Diamond Awards that they will retire Blyleven's uniform number to honor the pitcher who will be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame on July 24.
No. 28, which Blyleven wore for all 11 seasons he spent with the Twins, will be retired during a pregame celebration on July 16 at Target Field when the Twins host the Royals as part of Bert Blyleven Day.
