AND I saw Kirby the Kestrel circling above Target Field just before the first pitch on June 16th.
The Twins announced today that they are reserving, for a couple games, a mostly standing room only area for people who are allergic to peanuts. Doesn't that give you the warm fuzzies?
You can see the Star Tribune report on it here. Note lehun14's comment:
Can we please create several "double play free" games as well?
Walks Will Haunt
If you were trying to find the one thing that survived the trip from the Metrodome to Target Field, I found it. And it's awesome.
The after picture wins because (a) it's outside, (b) the ghost doesn't look like he just took a pee bath, (c) it's more haunting, and (d) the disgruntled Twins O-Gram in the corner.
Morneau is MLB's Most Fan-Accessible Player
Before the Royals game on June 10th, some fans near the right field (where the Twins were warming up) kept yelling at Justin Morneau. Justin then came over to the Fans and signed autographs for about 15 minutes!
This was just before the game started. Very awesome on the part of Morneau. He must be trying to show up Mauer in the most fan-accessible player rankings.
Jon Rauch Will Eat You
All those complaining about how the Twins need to trade for a closer need to shut up. Look at this awesome intro the Twins made for Rauch.
Doesn't it feel like Jon Rauch is going to reach through the computer screen and punch you in the face?
