MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Recently retired outfielder Torii Hunter and former radio announcer John Gordon have been elected to the Minnesota Twins Hall of Fame.

The Twins announced Friday that Hunter and Gordon will be inducted in separate pregame ceremonies July 16 and 17. They’ll become the 27th and 28th members.

The 40-year-old Hunter played 12 of his 19 seasons with the Twins, including his return in 2015. He ranks fifth on the team’s all-time list in home runs, sixth in RBIs and seventh in games, hits, doubles and runs.

The 75-year-old Gordon spent 25 seasons calling Twins games on the radio, from 1987 to 2011.

Twins Hall of Fame membership is permanently displayed in a gallery on the suite level at Target Field and on the plaza outside the ballpark.
