Moments after the Twins beat Detroit 9 to 5 in the 1987 American League Championship KARE broadcast this memorable hour of coverage including Jeff Passolts locker room interviews complete with champagne and shaving cream attacks.
Jim Sustacek: Does either newspaper in town do media ads anymore?
John Paulson: KARE 11 had a huge advantage for this newscast. NBC had the ALCS this season and as a result they were able to keep a sizable portion of the audience even though this clincher was played on a Monday afternoon with a 2 PM start time back in the twin cities.
