Richfield native and former Gopher Mike Sadek was drafted by his hometown Twins in 1967.  After three years in their organization, he was drafted out of it by the San Francisco Giants.  He made it to the majors in 1973 and spent eight seasons in a Giants uniform.  He was never much with the stick, but was an outstanding receiver and had a fine career as a backup catcher, playing with legends like Willie McCovey and Juan Marichal.
