Near record attendance at TwinsFest 2010

The Twins’ annual fan festival, TwinsFest, wrapped up on Sunday after
drawing one of the largest crowds in the history of the three-day
event.

A total of 34,637 fans attended TwinsFest 2010 at the Metrodome this past weekend, the second-highest total attendance in the event’s history. The Twins set the record for attendance in 2007, when more than 35,000
fans showed up at the Metrodome.

TwinsFest,
which is one of the largest team-run fan festivals in professional sports, is an annual
fundraiser for the Minnesota Twins Community Fund. Since its inception in 1989,
TwinsFest has raised more than $4 million for programs and organizations
supported by the Twins Community Fund.

The end of TwinsFest means that the start of Spring Training is not far away. Twins pitchers
and catchers are scheduled to report to Fort Myers, Fla., on Feb. 21,
with their first workout taking place the next day. The rest of the
squad will report on Feb. 26, and full-squad workouts will begin on
Feb. 27.
