After 12-years pitching for the Minnesota Twins, Glen Perkins is officially done with baseball, but he's far from done with Minnesota.

Perkins lives in the south metro and is keeping busy in his woodworking shop.

"I get do stuff and have fun here and my body doesn't hurt," Perkins told KSTP's Darren Wolfson. "I earned that. I am happy that I can make that decision. I have no regrets."

Perkins graduated from Stillwater High School, pitched for the Gophers and finished with 120 career saves with the Twins. With so much time spent in the state of hockey, it's no surprise that he's already built a huge ice rink for his family. Perkins has also made a few things for his friends.

"I made something for a buddy and he said... I thought you only had two talents - playing baseball and drinking beer. I didn't known you could make anything out of wood!"
