MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Twins will honor Jacob Wetterling and show support for his family by wearing a No. 11 patch on their jerseys Friday night against the Indians.
Twins officials said Cleveland players will also wear the patch in support of Jacob.
Jacob Wetterling was a fan of all sports and wore the No. 11 jersey as a child. The Wetterling family has asked people to use the number 11 as a symbol of hope to honor their son and show a commitment to making the world better for kids.
The Twins will also have a moment of remembrance before Friday night’s game, and there will be a tribute graphic to Wetterling on an outfield wall the rest of the season.
Wetterling was kidnapped in October of 1989, and it was learned earlier this week that Danny Heinrich admitted to his abduction and murder.
