He's seen his fair share of strikes, home runs and 7th inning-stretches since his first game in 1973.

Holland lost both feet to diabetes and has two homer hankies laminated into his artificial feet.

The Twins super fan hasn't let the setback keep him from going to see his favorite team.

"It's not the end of the world when you lose an arm, foot, or a leg. You can still go and enjoy life and do the fun things you like to do," Holland said. "I'm here for this team every day, win or lose, doesn't matter what the score or where they are in the standings. I'm always here to support my Minnesota Twins. I'm very proud of that." 

Holland believes he'll be adding to his impressive number this season. He predicts the Twins will make the World Series.
