MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Twins director of minor league operations Jim Rantz is retiring after 52 years with the team.
The 75-year old has been with the Twins' franchise since its inception in 1961 after signing his first professional contract with the Washington Senators in 1960.
In a statement, Rantz said he's had an incredible journey and looks forward to spending more time with his family.
After spending five years as a player and manager, he joined the Twins' front office following the 1965 season. He spent four years in public relations before moving into the minor league and scouting department.
Rantz became director of minor league operations in 1986 and assumed full administration of the Twins minor league baseball operations.
He was elected to the Twins Hall of Fame in 2007.
