“T.C. the Bear” was recently unveiled as the newest bronze statue at Target Field ahead of the MLB All-Star Game in July. It led us to ponder, what Twins great deserves to have a bronze statue at the ballpark?
As the All-Star Game gets closer, Minneapolis’ twin city, St. Paul, is getting into the action. Surrounded by school children, the Minnesota Twins unveiled new All-Star lineup of jersey-wearing Peanuts characters suited up for the midsummer classic. St. Paul’s native M&M boys, Paul Molitor and Joe Mauer – both All-Star Ambassadors – were there to welcome two other St. Paul icons into the All-Star lineup: Snoopy and Charlie Brown.
The Minnesota Twins will add Kent Hrbek to their collection of bronzed former players outside Target Field with a pregame ceremony next weekend.
The guest list for this year’s governor’s pheasant hunt in South Dakota included politicians, professional athletes and a former president.

That’s one of Minnesota fan’s favorite years to talk about, and we all know why.
