MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins are stepping up to the plate to support their neighbors across the street.
The Twins have purchased 500 tickets for the Minnesota Lynx playoff opener on Friday night against San Antonio. The upper level tickets will be available for free to those who call the Lynx ticket office.
Outfielder Michael Cuddyer cut some radio ads to congratulate the Lynx.
Lynx COO Conrad Smith says the team appreciates the Twins’ support and expects the tickets to go quickly.
Fans can call the Lynx ticket office at 612-673-8400 starting at 7 a.m. local time to redeem their tickets. Each fan can claim two tickets.
The Lynx finished the season with a WNBA-best 27-7 record to earn homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs.
