    The Ray Crump Collection

    The memorabilia in this section originates from personal collection of Ray Crump, who got his start in baseball within the Washington Senators' clubhouse, serving as a batboy for the club beginning in 1948. When the Senators moved to Minnesota in 1961, he came North with them to become the Twins' first equipment manager, a position he held until retiring from the organization in 1984. This long tenure in the American League provided Mr. Crump with the ability to amass a vast collection of keepsakes, which are presented in the pages that follow.
