Kirby Puckett (March 14, 1960 – March 6, 2006) was a Major League Baseball center fielder. He played his entire 12-year baseball career with the Minnesota Twins (1984–1995) and he is the Twins franchise's all-time leader in career hits, runs, doubles and total bases. At the time of his retirement, his .318 career batting average was the highest by any right-handed American League batter since Joe DiMaggio.

Puckett was the fourth baseball player during the 20th century to record 1,000 hits in his first five full calendar years in Major League Baseball, and was the second to record 2,000 hits during his first ten full calendar years. After being forced to retire at age 35 due to loss of vision in one eye from glaucoma, Puckett was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2001 in his first year of eligibility.

Puckett died on 6 March 2006, after suffering a stroke the previous day at his home in Phoenix, AZ.

Puckett's major league debut came on May 8 against the California Angels and would go 4 for 5 with one run. That year, Puckett hit .296 and was fourth in the American League in singles. In 1985, Puckett hit .288 and finished fourth in the league in hits, third in triples, second in plate appearances, and first in at bats. Throughout his career, Puckett would routinely appear in the top 10 in the American League in such offensive statistical categories as games played, at bats, singles, doubles, and total bases and such defensive stats as putouts, assists, and fielding percentage for league center fielders.

In 1986, Puckett began to emerge as more than just a singles hitter. With an average of .328, Puckett was elected to his first all-star game and he finished the season seventh in doubles, sixthhome runs, fourth in extra base hits, third in slugging percentage, and second in runs scored, hits, total bases, and at bats. Kirby was also recognized for his defensive skills, earning his first Gold Glove Award.

Puckett was born and raised in Robert Taylor Homes, a housing project on Chicago's South Side (the escape from which he frequently referred back to during his career), before attending and playing baseball for Calumet City High School. After receiving no scholarship offers following graduation, Puckett at first went to work on an assembly line for Ford Motor Company. However he was given a chance to attend Bradley University and was a star on the baseball team, despite his under-sized 5' 8" frame, before the Minnesota Twins selected him in the 1st round (3rd pick) of the 1982 MLB Draft.

After signing with the team, he was assigned to the rookie-league Elizabethton Twins in the Appalachian League where he immediately showed why the Twins considered him so highly, hitting .382, with 3 home runs, 35 RBI, and amazing 43 steals, in only 65 games, albeit against predominantly younger players. In 1983, Puckett was promoted to the Single-A Visalia Oaks in the California League and although he production came back to Earth somewhat (hitting "only" .318, with 9 homeruns, 97 RBI, and 48 stolen bases in 138 games) continued to turn heads in the organization. After being promoted to AAA Toledo to start the 1984 season, Puckett was brought up to the majors for good 21 games into the season.
