Another Ex-Twins Player To Be Cast In Bronze
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins plan to add another bronze statue of a former player outside Target Field next year.
Twins spokesman Kevin Smith says the player has yet to be named. He would join statues of Harmon Killebrew, Kirby Puckett, Rod Carew, Tony Oliva and the late Twins owner Carl Pohlad and his wife Eloise.
Smith says the Twins hope to unveil the new statue at the April 9 home opener against the Los Angeles Angels.
Other changes planned at Target Field next season include improved wi-fi coverage and more automatic door controls for wheelchair seating.
Smith also says TwinsFest is moving back to the Metrodome in January. The team’s annual fan festival was moved to the National Sports Center in Blaine this year after a snowstorm ripped the Metrodome roof.
