More news and nuggets
Before I headed to the ballpark this morning, I thought I’d post some additional stuff from yesterday’s game and other news
- A reminder: Twins single-game regular season tickets go on sale today at noon CT. Tickets can be purchased by visiting twinsbaseball.com
- Glen Perkins looked relaxed in his latest start. Perkins said that coming into the spring knowing that he has a starting job has made him more relaxed and his focus now is just to put himself in the best position to make it through the entire season feeling strong…”Every year prior to this, I think I came in more season-ready,” Perkins said. “I’m using this as a Spring Training, saving some of those bullets for September and October rather than March.”
- The Twins’ April 18 game against the Angels, which was originally scheduled as a 2:40 p.m. CT start, has been moved to a 6:10 p.m. CT contest instead. The reason is that Fox had been scheduled to do a national broadcast of the game, but chose to pick up another game. The reason for the switch? Fox decided to broadcast Manny Ramirez’s Dodgers instead.
- The Twins will begin broadcasting the second of their 2009 television commercials on Monday on local TV outlets. The second ad is entitled “Take it Outside” and features catcher Joe Mauer, his mother Teresa Mauer and closer Joe Nathan. From what I’ve been told by people in the organization, this might be the club’s best commercial yet. And for those of you outside of Minnesota, the ad will be available at twinsbaseball.com after it debuts on TV.
