The American League Central is one of six divisions in Major League baseball. It was formed in the realignment in 1994, and all five of its member teams are located in the Midwestern United States. It is also the only division in Major League baseball in which all of its members have won the World Series at least once. One of the star teams of the Central Division, having won the World Series a total of six times, is the Minnesota Twins. The Twins is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota and is named after the Twin Cities area of Minneapolis and St. Paul. The team was founded in Kansas City in 1894 as the Kansas City Blues of the Western League. The team moved to Washington, D.C. in 1901 as one of the eight original teams of the American League, named the Washington Senators or Washington Nationals. The Twins have been doing pretty well in the American League season, placing at number 2 in the Central Division with an almost even win/loss ratio.  And it seems that one of the Twins players to watch out for is Aaron Hicks. The switch hitter Major League rookie might only be 23 but has some serious accomplishments under his belt: from being drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the first round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft straight out of high school, being tabbed a 2008 Baseball America Rookie All-Star in his first professional season, to batting .318 with four home runs, 27 runs batted in, twelve stolen bases and 28 walks for the Gulf Coast League Twins to earn a Gulf Coast League postseason All-Star nod shows that this young man is definitely a player to watch. Yet, one cannot look past his current standings after his first ten professional games – he has tied the all-time record for strikeouts in his first ten games – yet, the top five players on the list of all-time strikeouts have all gone on to have pretty good careers. So whether you’re just a fan of the rookie or of the Minnesota twins, looking at their current standings, and their six World Series titles, you might want to place some money on how far they will be going in the Series. And if face to face betting isn’t for you, there are always sites like jackpotcapitalcasino.com where you can enjoy some safe and fun online gambling.
