Kent Hrbek will become the sixth person associated with the Twins franchise to have his likeness immortalized in a bronze statue outside of Target Field.

Hrbek, a Bloomington native who played his entire 14-year career with the Twins and was part of World Series championship teams in 1987 and 1991, said he was recently told by team President Dave St. Peter that his statue will be unveiled this summer.

Hrbek, who had a .282 career batting average with 293 home runs, already has his uniform number retired.

The  current bronze statues are of Harmon Killebrew, Kirby Puckett, Rod Carew, Tony Oliva, former owner Calvin Griffith and late owner Carl Pohlad and his wife Eloise Pohlad.
