On This Date in Minnesota History: November 18

November 18, 1965 – Minnesota Twins shortstop Zoilo Versalles was selected on this date as the American League MVP, getting 19 out of 20 first place. Versalles became the first Latino player and the first Twin to win an MVP award.

Versalles led the AL in plate appearances (728), at-bats (666) runs scored (126) and total bases (308), was second in assists (487) and third in stolen bases (27).

If you are interested in finding out more about your family history in Minnesota, I specialize in researching  genealogical and historical records in Minn. and western Wis., including:
census records,  birth records,  death certificates, obits, grave site photos, ship passenger lists, marriage records and declarations of intent/naturalization records.  I will visit locations to research local history and county records, as well as take photos. Quick turnaround on MNHS records.  Both short searches and family history reports.
