MINNEAPOLIS -- Eddie Guardado is headed to the Minnesota Twins Hall of Fame.
Team president Dave St. Peter announced at Friday's annual media luncheon at Target Field that Guardado, the longtime reliever, will be inducted along with former public relations director Tom Mee at a pregame ceremony on June 14.
They'll become the 25th and 26th members of the team's hall of fame, which was established as part of the team's 40th season celebration in 2000.
Guardado was in the major leagues for 17 seasons, including 12 with the Twins -- 1993 to 2003, then again in 2008. "Every Day Eddie" is the team's all-time leader in games (648) and ranks third in club history with 116 saves, including an American League-best 45 in 2002.
A 21st-round pick by the Twins in 1990, Guardado also spent time with Seattle, Cincinnati and Texas. He was selected to two All-star games.
Mee began his career in 1957 and was widely regarded as the Twins' first employee. A St. Paul native, Mee held a variety of positions in the organization before retiring in 1991.
