If you had to rank radio announcer photos at a visiting stadium, this one has to be in the top five, at least. Take a look, courtesy Mike Herman, the Twins' Director of Team Travel:

It's Dan Gladden, who calls games for the Twins radio network, at Atlanta last night. This was Minnesota's first visit to the Braves' ballpark since the 1991 World Series, won by the Twins in a classic seven games.

Gladden, who scored the series-clinching run, decided to hang Kent Hrbek's jersey outside the booth to tweak the fans (who remember, after all -- it was 22 years ago). And if you look close, he's proudly displaying the Kent Hrbek-Ron Gant bobblehead, featuring Herbie's famous 'rasslin tag.
