Cocktails with the Governor
The Lind House Board of Directors is pleased to announce that the guest of honor at this year’s Cocktails at the Governor’s reception will be Terry Steinbach, New Ulm native and catcher for the Oakland Athletics and Minnesota Twins.
Former professional baseball player, Terry Steinbach, will be joining us for the annual Cocktails at the Governor’s reception at the Lind House on Friday, May 11, 2018 from 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm. Previous guests of honor have been TV personalities Ron Schara and Jerrid Sebesta, former governors Al Quie, Wendell Anderson, Arne Carlson and Tim Pawlenty; former senators Rudy Boschwitz and David Durenburger; former congressman Tim Penny, and John Lind’s great-grandson Bill Griffith.
Terry Steinbach is a former MLB catcher and current coach for the Minnesota Twins. Steinbach rose to baseball prominence as a third baseman at the University of Minnesota, where he was named Co-Player of the Year in the Big 10 Conference in 1983. After being drafted by the Athletics in 1983, Steinbach would play in the minor leagues for three years until making his MLB debut in 1986. During his time in the minors, the Athletics switched Steinbach to catcher, a move that would place him at his position for the rest of his career. In his first career game, Steinbach hit a homerun during his first career at bat, cementing himself as the starting catcher for the Athletics who would go on to win three straight American League pennants from 1988 to 1990.
Steinbach had career year in 1996, hitting 35 homeruns and driving in 100 RBIs, and was named an All-Star in 1988, 1989, and 1993. Steinbach signed with his hometown Minnesota Twins in 1997, playing with them until 1999 when he retired as a player. In 2013, the Twins brought back Steinbach as a bench and hitting coach, and he serves that position to this day.
