Rick Renick was a utilityman for parts of five seasons with the Twins, and is best known for hitting a home run in his first major league at bat (off Detroit great Mickey Lolich). He returned to the Twins organization in 1987, taking over as the third base coach for Tom Kelly after Kelly was promoted to manager. He was kind enough to sign cards depicting him as both a Twins player and coach, as well as the Donruss Opening Day logo card for my Ultimate 1987 Donruss autographed team set.
