Before spring training kicks off, Twins reps hit the road to visit fans in the Midwest: All aboard the Winter Caravan. We're proud to take this awesome trek each year. For over 50 diverse communities, it's a "thank you" on behalf of the team.
TwinsFest offers fans interactive activities and a behind the scenes look at Target Field to raise money for the Twins Community Fund. The Twins Diversity Marketing department partners with its Spanish broadcast station, La Raza. Players are interviewed at the Celebrate Diversity/La Raza booth where fans can take pictures with the players after their interviews. Spanish Radio hosts, Alfonso Fernandez and Tony Oliva, also conduct interviews with players in the Champions Club as a fun way to build excitement for the upcoming season.
Seventy-two years ago, on April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson broke Baseball's color barrier when he made his historic MLB debut. A key component of this celebration is Jackie Robinson Day, and by all on-field personnel proudly wearing Jackie's "42". As part of the Jackie Robinson day celebration at Target Field, the varsity baseball teams from Patrick Henry High School and North Community High School joined the Twins and Blue Jays on the foul lines for the National Anthem at Target Field. Students from the Reading is Powerful program presented by Papa John's were also recognized on-field. These students were nominated by their teachers for displaying Jackie Robinson's Nine Values to Live By.
Everyone is Welcome at Target Field. The Twins are hosting Pride Night at Target Field on Monday, July 9.
August 19-25, 2019 is the Twins annual Diversity Week celebration! Stay tuned for this year's event details.
It begins with a pregame video celebrating this legendary player: his background, his profound skills and above all, his mission to serve. One MLB player who reflects those values is recognized. The Twins present a community award as well.
A diverse group of leaders representing Twin Cities businesses join us for networking events at Target Field. It's a strongly built route to collaboration and bonding, and helps us lay a foundation for future endeavors.
