The best prospect in the majors made his debut at Target Field, and it came with a Twins win.

Byron Buxton is only 21 years old, and made the quickest jump to the majors by a Twins player in a decade.

His fielding was fast, but he struggled a little at the plate.

Twins took the St. Louis Cardinals 3 to 1.

The Treasury Department made the announcement that the bill will be unveiled in 2020.

That’s the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote.

No word on who will be on the bill.

It’s the fourth book in the bondage series.

More than 125 million copies of the trilogy have sold, and experts predict this will be a hit, too.
