Ben Fischbach, 11, of Monticello had former Twins great Jack Morris and Wally the beer man cracking up with one of his stories on Saturday afternoon at Hi-Way Liquors in Monticello.

Morris, famous in Minnesota for his incredible 10-inning shutout in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series, was at the local liquor store signing autographs and chatting with visitors from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Riverfest Saturday.

The store had previously hosted the same duo, nearly ten years ago to the date, and said they were just trying to make a splash, and do a little something for the community by doing it again.

It worked, people were already waiting for the duo around 8:15 on Saturday morning.
