Twins Spokesman Kevin Smith says Commissioner Bud Selig spearheaded the effort to have young people watch the film.

“Because of the Twins active involvement in youth baseball and softball activities, especially in the inner city, we thought it would be great to get our kids to see this film,” Smith said.

More than 600 kids saw “42″ for free in the Twin Cities.
