MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Twins designated hitter Jason Kubel smashed a first-inning line drive off Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis’ glove Monday afternoon.
But the RBI single wasn’t the hardest-hit ball that came off Kubel’s bat.
Forevermore, Kubel — who was born in Belle Fourche — will be known for hitting the first-ever regular-season home run at the Twins’ new outdoor ballpark, Target Field.
