Brush With Fame: Tea With Tony Oliva

As a child, Kim Yaman always looked forward to listening to the Minnesota Twins in her grandparents' dining room. She remembers hearing the roar of the crowd when Tony Oliva would come up to bat. Years later she met Tony in person while working at a Catholic charity. But her story doesn't end there.
