Broadcaster John Gordon was inducted into the Twins' Hall of Fame before their home game against Cleveland on Sunday afternoon.

He was the team's play-by-play voice for 25 years, says KMSP. Gordon joined the team in 1987 – the same year that the Twins went on to defeat the Cardinals in the World Series.

His trademark was to say "Touch 'em all, (insert player name here)!" after a player hit one out of the park and began rounding bases.

John Gordon stayed trending on Twitter Sunday afternoon, showing support from his large fan-base.

When they let Gordon broadcast half an inning of Sunday's game, fans got really nostalgic:
