Even with more than 90 losses for three straight seasons, the Minnesota Twins have averaged more than 30,000 fans a game since Target Field opened in 2010.

He’s worn many hats throughout his career: a newspaper writer, blogger, photographer and most recently, children’s author. “Baseball is my passion,” Jones said. “I love kids and I like to do as many things as I can. I’m having more fun now than I’ve ever had in my life.”
