ORLANDO -- ThereĀ“s a mask bearing "KKK" lettering hanging on Kent Hrbek's stall in the Twins' locker room, but it'snot anindication of any racial prejudices on Hrbek's part."The Hood" was created two years ago and is given to any Twin who strikes out three times in one game. Hrbek was the last to "win" it. Mike Smithson's locker is topped with the pitcher's equivalent, a huge sombrero, given to the last pitcher to get nailed for three home runs in one game.
