Kirby Puckett had only played in the Major Leagues for two seasons when this interview was recorded during Spring Training of 1987. His career lasted through 1995.

In 1987, Puckett led the Twins to the World Series. Their second since relocating to Minnesota (1965 loss to the LA Dodgers) came after batting .332 with 28 home runs and 99 RBI in the regular season. His performance was even more impressive in the seven-game Series upset over the St. Louis Cardinals, batting a whopping .357. (wikipedia)
