MINNEAPOLIS The Minnesota Twins and Milwaukee Brewers will "Turn Back the Clock" on May 30. On Monday, members of the Twins helped show off the uniforms they'll be wearing for that game.
Minnesota will wear gray throwback uniforms of the 1948 St. Paul Saints team, while the Brewers will also wear jerseys from the 1948 season. Twins catcher Joe Mauer and closer Glen Perkins modeled the Saints jerseys they'll wear at the end of the month.
"The Twins are proud to remember this important part of Minnesota's great baseball heritage as the teams don the uniforms of the St. Paul Saints and Milwaukee Brewers," said Twins curator Clyde Doepner. "This is truly a case of past meets present at Target Field."
That 1948 Saints team included the likes of Roy Campanella, who was the first African American player to play in the American Association. Along with the jerseys from the 1948 team, the Twins will also pay tribute to St. Paul as they honor players from the state's capitol throughout the game on the 30th. Hall of Famer and St. Paul native Paul Molitor will also be at Target Field and fans can take their pictures with the former Twin. The first 20,000 fans to the game will receive a St. Paul Saints pennant.

MINNEAPOLIS Before getting blanked by the Orioles on Sunday, the Minnesota Twins' offense seemed to finally be finding its groove after a dormant April. Not surprisingly, the M&M Boys had something to do with the resurgence.
In the first month of the season, Minnesota scored just 92 runs, tied for fourth-fewest in all of baseball. Granted, the Twins played a few less games...
The Minnesota Twins have a pair of outfield prospects setting the Midwest League on fire over the first 35 games of the season. The likes of 19-year old Byron Buxton and 21-year old Adam Walker have paced the Twins Single A affiliate Cedar Rapids Kernels to a first place 24-11 record. Buxton and Walker form arguably the best 1-2 punch in all of the Midwest League making Twins fans...
MINNEAPOLIS It's not often a Twins player is coaxed out of the dugout for a curtain call from the fans at Target Field. Then again, not many Twins players have done what rookie center fielder Aaron Hicks did Monday as he hit two home runs and robbed another in Minnesota's 10-3 win over Chicago.
But since this was the first time Hicks received a curtain call in his young...
MINNEAPOLIS Aaron Hicks was all over the highlight reels on Monday night, and for good reason. The Twins rookie hit two home runs and also made a leaping catch to rob an Adam Dunn homer.
Following Monday's 10-3 win over the visiting White Sox, Hicks' phone was busy. He said he received around 80 text messages and around 15 voicemails from friends and family wanting to chat...
CATCH OF THE YEAR
Aaron Hicks of the Minnesota Twins made a homerun robbing catch today that might go down as one of the best of the year. Adam Dunn of the Chicago White Sox hit an absolute bomb to straight away center. Hicks took off towards the track and made a huge leap against the wall, robbing Dunn of what would have been about a 415 foot homer. Your browser does not support iframes.
MINNEAPOLIS This wasn't characteristic for a Scott Diamond start.As the Minnesota Twins' best pitcher last year, Diamond was essentially immune from pitching a clunker. Sunday against Baltimore, though, he finally had one. Minnesota's left-hander matched gave up six runs on nine hits including three home runs in just 5 23 innings of work in the Twins' 6-0 loss...

Aaron Hicks pulled a Mike Trout on Monday night. The Minnesota Twins rookie has had a rough start to his career, but he busted out in a big way against the Chicago White Sox.
Hicks clubbed a solo home run in the fourth, robbed a potential tying 2-run home run in the top of the sixth, and hit a solo home run in the bottom of the inning to help...
The umpiring crew for the Minnesota Twins-Chicago White Sox game on Tuesday night badly blew a pair of calls in Chicago’s 4-2 win at Target Field.
The first blown call occurred with two outs in the bottom of the fifth. Justin Morneau was on second when Oswaldo Arcia singled to right field. Morneau tried to score on the play, but Alex Rios’ throw clearly beat him. Morneau tried...
Rookie Aaron Hicks may own one of the lowest batting averages in the majors, but he's finding success against the Chicago White Sox.
That's fairly common for Joe Mauer.
Hicks will try to build on his best performance in the majors, while Mauer looks to extend his hitting streak to 13 games as the Twins host the White Sox on Tuesday night.
Hicks, a first-round pick by Minnesota...

Of course, this applies to virtually nobody, which means whoever came up with a price of $14.97 for this clearly defective Indians/Twins mashup baseball cap is out of their minds. (We can not confirm or deny the comments by the Reddit poster that this hat was found at Wal-Mart).

Even in winning, Chicago's most recent contest was a microcosm of the young season, as its struggling offense continues to have a difficult time providing run support for a solid pitching staff.
Hector Santiago may be the newest member of the starting rotation, but even he isn't immune to that fact.

Ryan Doumit homered, Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau each had three hits, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-5 Saturday night.
Vance Worley (1-4) struggled through 5 1-3 innings, but a strong performance by Minnesota's bullpen enabled him to earn his first win in 13 starts dating to Aug. 1, 2012.

Some of these like Derek Jeter and Joe Mauer are pretty obvious. Others like the Padres, Astros, etc. are not so obvious. Do Yankees fans even want to think about life without Jeter? I’m sure this period is tolerable because they know he’s coming back.
