                Inducted 2008 Summer in Minnesota means Minnesota Twins baseball, and for more than twenty summers, Minnesota Twins baseball on the radio has meant John Gordon. A Detroit native, Gordon joined the Twins radio team prior to the club’s historic 1987 world championship season, after five years with the New York Yankees broadcast crew. For twenty years with WCCO, and now with KSTP and the Twins Radio Network, his signature style has been a hit with fans throughout the Upper Midwest. Listeners love his play-by-play, and his unforgettable “Touch ‘em All” home run call has become a part of baseball lore. What the fans may not know, but what his fellow broadcasters appreciate, is how hard he works behind the scenes with interviews and promos for affiliates, the Twins Winter Caravan, and much more. His enthusiasm is contagious for listeners and colleagues alike, and he’s helped raise thousands of dollars for such organizations as the Minnesota Stroke Association, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Twins Community Fund. In 1998, the Minnesota Broadcasters Association named him Broadcast Personality of the Year, in recognition of his excellence and dedication.

In 1927 he moved to WAAU Omaha, Nebraska, appearing as the “Master Troubadour” before becoming “Slim Jim” again at WRHM (now WWTC) Minneapolis/Saint Paul in 1932. Broadcasting with his brother Clarence (“The Vagabond Kid”), his noontime program was a favorite throughout the 1930s, ‘40s, and ‘50s on several Twin Cities and regional stations, including WDGY, KSTP, WLOL, and KEYD. He also appeared on experimental WDGY telecasts in the 1930s, and hosted the hour-long “Slim Jim’s Westerners” on what is now KMSP TV Minneapolis/Saint Paul in the 1950s. His death, at the age of 55, in 1958 was mourned by legions of fans.
