Twins Tunes: “Kitty Kaat”

Celebrating Twins legend Jim Kaat, who was a heckuva fielder.

Jim Kaat pitching in the 1965 World Series.

Hello and welcome to the second installment of Twins Tunes. My name’s Louie.

The second song is about Jim “Kitty” Kaat, who pitched for the Senators/Twins from 1959 to 1973 (and also looks like he could be my uncle). Kaat won 16 Gold Gloves in his career, which is a lot. (Greg Maddux has 18, and Brooks Robinson also has 16, so Kaat is in some rarefied air.)

If you like what you hear, feel free to share it on social media and whatnot. I don’t have any of those anymore, so if this thing’s gonna go viral, it’s up to you, Twinkie Town masses.

Special thanks to my cousin Bubba, who mixed, engineered, produced, and mastered the track. You can check out his music at or by searching for “Bubba Holly” on Spotify/BandCamp/wherever you get your music. His new album is terrific. Also, Bubba and I make music under the name Bunkin’ Cousins, if you’d like to hear concept albums about the late medieval period or epic cabin weekends.

Without further adieu, enjoy “Kitty Kaat.”
