After serving as a backup catcher for the Twins in the 1970s, Phil Roof spent over two decades as a minor league coach, manager, and instructor in the Twins organization. He was the manager of the 1989 Portland Beavers, but ProCards did not produce a card for him in the set. I asked him to sign the team checklist card to add to my autographed team set. He did so, inscribing it "Mgr."
