Reusse: Twins’ altercation in 1967? Part about a gun on team bus was avoided

The “by-play” among Ted Uhlaender, Tony Oliva, and Dave Boswell on the Twins team bus from the Detroit airport to the hotel is evidently a euphemism for gunplay.

Then, Tony took the copy of the Star’s front sports page, looked at the headline – “Ermer’s Strong Hand Calms Twin Squabble’’ – and offered the slight smile that indicates he’s interested in something.

“There was a part of this that no one would talk about, and the writers didn’t write,’’ he said. “Boswell had a gun on the bus.

“It was an exhibition game, and I don’t know – there was probably a lot of drinking by some players, if they weren’t playing, or after they left the game. We were on the way in from the Detroit airport, and Boswell started waving around a gun, above his head, like he was going to shoot a hole in the roof.

“I don’t know if the gun was loaded or not. I told Boswell to put the gun away, that it was not funny, it was dangerous.

“That’s when Uhlaender got involved.’’
