Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire taught his son, Toby, many things about the game of baseball. Recently, the Twins skipper gave his oldest child a different life lesson.
In a picture shared on Twitter by Toby's wife, Lindsay, Ron Gardenhire can be seen reflected in a mirror as he looks on while Toby holds a razor in his hands. The tweet says, "Father teaching son how to trim eyebrows SpecialMoment 10poundslighter."

Gardenhire, 55, is in his 12th season at the helm in Minnesota. He has led the Twins to six American League Central titles but finished with 99 and 96 losses the last two seasons. Toby Gardenhire, 30, was a minor league player in the Twins' system up until 2011, when he played 103 games with Triple-A Rochester. He is now the head baseball coach at UW-Stout in Menomonie, Wis. Toby's Blue Devils team was recently down in Fort Myers, Fla., to take on the Twins' rookie team. UW-Stout lost, 3-2, in 10 innings.
At least Stout's manager was able to look on with perfectly manicured eyebrows.

The Twins are in dire need of pitching. This is not up for debate. Surely, then many Twins fans must have been excited to see Sam Deduno tear up the World Baseball Classic, starting three games, pitching 13 innings and allowing only one run. He had a 17/5 K/BB ratio. Lights out.

FORT MYERS, Fla. There has been a buzz of excitement this spring training at the Lee County Sports Complex, and it has had as much, if not more, to do with the scene on the minor league side of camp as in the big-league clubhouse.
As the Minnesota Twins prepare to return home from spring training, an arsenal of, at last count, 165...
Samuel Deduno pleaded with Tony Pena to leave him in the game - the outing of his life, his country across his chest.
