Time Capsule: Kirby Puckett before Game 7, 1991


This is the seventh anniversary of Kirby Puckett's death. On March 6, 2006, the Twins' Hall of Fame center fielder passed away one day after suffering a stroke at his Scottsdale, Ariz., home.

While there are thousands of clips, photos and articles celebrating what Puckett meant to baseball and the Upper Midwest, we found a quiet moment between the ballplayer and CBS sports reporter Pat O'Brien.

It's a clip that aired before Game 7 of the 1991 World Series, when O'Brien visited Puckett at his home that morning. It's at the 1:20 mark in the video below:
