2009 marked the final year in the Metrodome, home to the Minnesota Twins since 1982.
There have been many memorable moments in Metrodome history.
from Kirby Puckett's game winning home run in the World Series to Minnesota winning the AL Central on the last day of the 2006 season.
Along the way, many great names in the game called Minneapolis home. From Puckett to Morneau, Blyleven to Santana, the list goes on and on. Here are the top 10 Twins players to call the "Homerdome" home.
Since his arrival to the Metrodome in 2003, the Twins first baseman has hit 69 home runs at home, 276 RBI with a .275 batting average.
Known for his bat, Morneau is also a very good defensive first baseman, averaging a fielding percentage of .992 over his seven-year major league career.
What needs to be said about Joe Mauer? The Twins catcher is the first to win a batting title at his position in the American League, and he has accomplished the feat twice, in 2006 and 2008.
He was selected to the All-Star game in those years and won his first Gold Glove in 2008.
A career .320 batter, Joe Mauer is one of the fixtures of the Twins' offense in the present and will continue to be when the team moves outdoors next season.
Acquired after the 2003 season from the San Francisco Giants, Joe Nathan has been one of the game's best closers, averaging 39.8 saves in five full seasons with Minnesota.
An All-Star in 2004, 2005 and 2008, Nathan will be counted on to close out games for the Twins in the foreseeable future.
Before his move to the Big Apple, Johan Santana was the face of the Minnesota Twins franchise. In eight seasons with the Twins, Johan compiled a 93-44 record, with a 3.61 ERA and 1381 strikeouts.
A two time Cy Young Award winner in 2004 and 2006, and two-time All-Star in 2006 and 2007, Santana also won a Gold Glove in 2007.
Torii Hunter's home will always be cneterfield in the Metrodome. During his 11 seasons in Minnesota, Hunter hit 198 home runs, 711 RBI and 126 stolen bases.
A seven-time Gold Glover with the Twins from 2001-2007, Hunter was also a two-time All-Star in 2002 and 2007.
A fan favorite, the most memorable play that this writer can think of is his robbery of a Barry Bonds home run during the 2002 All-Star game.
Gary Gaetti spent his first ten seasons with the Minnesota Twins, hitting 201 homers and 758 RBI during that span. He was selected to consecutive All-Star games in 1988 and 1989, and was awarded the 1987 ALCS MVP.
Gaetti was also a very good defensive player, winning consecutive Gold Gloves from 1986 to 1989 and helping guide the Twins to their first World Championship in franchise history during the 1987 season.
Now the Twins color commentator on FSN North, Bert Blyleven spent 11 of his 22 seasons in the majors with Minnesota.
During his time with the Twins, the right-handed pitcher compiled 149 wins, 2035 strikeouts, 141 complete games and 29 shutouts and a 3.28 ERA.
Selected to the All-Star game in 1973 and again in 1985, Blyleven lead the league in shutouts in 1973 with nine and was consistently in the top ten for ERA.
Although his statistics say otherwise, Bert Blyleven has not been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
The host of the TV show "Kent Hrbek Outdoors" spent his entire professional baseball career with the Minnesota Twins.
One of the few power hitters to stay in the Twin Cities, Hrbek hit 293 career home runs, 1,086 RBI with a batting average of.282.
An All-Star in 1982 and American League MVP runner-up in 1984, Hrbek helped lead the Twins to two World Series titles along with...
Okay, so Torii Hunter is going to have to fight the ghost of Kirby Puckett to call centerfield home.
The face of the franchise since his arrival in 1984, the Hall of Famer was selected to 10 straight All-Star games, earning MVP honors in 1993.
He won 6 Gold Gloves from 1986-1992, the 1989 batting title, and was the MVP of the 1991 ALCS.
None of those accomplishments come close to comparison to the two World Championship teams that he was a part of, however, hitting the game winning home run in Game 6 of the 1991 World Series to keep the Twins championship hopes alive.
Would you expect anyone else?
All that needs to be said about Tom Kelly's impact on the Twins franchise is that he was the manager of the Twins two World Series teams, and is partly responsible for bringing the Twins from the depths of the American League to among one of the powerhouses.
A huge homefield advantage since its first season, the Twins will move outdoors to Target Field in 2010, playing an outdoor home game for the first time since 1981. Here's the list of the ten best "Homerdome Heroes". Do you agree, or would you flip some names and ranks?
