MINNEAPOLIS -- Mark your calendars: The Twins have released their schedule for special events and promotions for the 2020 season, as they look to defend their surprise American League Central championship from a year ago.

Longtime first baseman Justin Morneau will be inducted into the Twins' Hall of Fame during the weekend of May 22-23, highlighted by his pregame induction ceremony on May 23. Later in the season, the club will revisit its time in Minnesota with the 60th Season Celebration Weekend from July 31-Aug. 2, which will feature a Twins legends baseball game before the Aug. 2 match against the Astros.

Each of those weekend celebrations will be accompanied by special giveaways, including a Morneau Twins Hall of Fame collectors' pin (May 22) and bobblehead (May 23), as well as a special baby blue replica Twins jersey (July 31).

The Twins' other two bobblehead giveaways will commemorate the Bomba Squad's power -- past and future -- with a figurine of newly acquired slugger Josh Donaldson on June 16, and a special "Bomba Club" statuette on June 27, featuring Nelson Cruz, Mitch Garver, Max Kepler, Miguel Sanó and Eddie Rosario, the record-breaking five teammates who each hit 30 or more homers in 2019.

The club will also give away apparel items, including a Twins quarter-zip pullover (April 2, the club's home opener), a corduroy bomber cap (April 18), a "Star Wars" T-shirt (May 4), a Twins cap (June 6), a Twins T-shirt (Aug. 22) and a stocking cap (Sept. 18-19).

The full schedule of theme nights at Target Field this season will be released at a later date, but some of the club's "Celebration Days" for the season will include Pet Adoption Day (May 9), Armed Forces Appreciation Day (July 12), a Negro League Centennial Celebration (Aug. 14), Celebrate Diversity Day (Aug. 18), Native American Heritage Celebration (Aug. 19) and Dominican Republic Day (Aug. 23).

Single-game tickets for the full 2020 regular-season schedule will go on sale next Monday, but tickets for the April 2 home opener and all other April home games are already available online, via phone at 1-800-33-TWINS or at the Twins' box office. The 2020 "Twins Pass" ticket plan is also currently on sale at a special rate of $45 per month.
