TwinsFest Goes To National Sports Center In Blaine
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minnesota Twins have moved their annual fan festival to the suburbs, with the Metrodome still unusable because of a collapsed roof.
The team announced Thursday that TwinsFest will be held at the National Sports Center in Blaine, a multipurpose complex north of Minneapolis. The Friday-through-Sunday event will remain scheduled for Jan. 28-30.
TwinsFest is a fundraiser for the team’s charities, bringing most of the current roster and dozens of former players for autographs and interaction with fans. There’s also a sports memorabilia show.
The Metrodome’s roof gave out on Dec. 12. It won’t be fixed until at least March, forcing out hundreds of college baseball games and other non-sports events.
