MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Twins announced Thursday night that they will be retiring the two-time World Championship Manager Tom Kelly’s No. 10 uniform.

Kelly will receive the honor during a pregame celebration when the Twins host the Cleveland Indians on Sept. 8, 2012.

“Few, if any individuals have had as much direct impact on the success of the Twins franchise as Tom Kelly,” said Twins CEO Jim Pohlad. “Over a 41-year career with the Twins organization, Tom has helped ensure high standards on and off the field and has always demonstrated the utmost respect for the game. It is our honor to celebrate Tom’s remarkable career by forever retiring his famed No. 10.”

Kelly joins Harmon Killebrew, Rod Carew, Tony Oliva, Kent Hrbek, Kirby Puckett and Bert Blyleven as the seventh Twin to have his number retired by the organization.
