Ray Barton, the St. Paul, Minn., cartoonist who created the famous Twins image of two players shaking hands across a river, died of cancer over the weekend, according to multiple reports. He was 80.

Barton, the reports stated, was paid $15 in 1961 to create the image. At the time, he assumed it would grace the sides of Dixie Cups at Metropolitan Stadium for Minnesota's new Major League team, the Twins. But then-owner Calvin Griffith decided to turn the drawing into the team's official logo.

Reason why this is news is the New York papers had a field day on Philips when he was sued for sexual harassment when he was GM of the Metropolitans, so his having issues again allowed them to go for blood again.
