The Minnesota Twins believe in the power of education and literacy. Each year, members of the Twins Front Office, including senior level executives, visit over 30 schools around the Twin Cities Metro. While in the classroom, Twins staff read a baseball-themed book and lead a discussion with the students about values and lessons from the book. Topics of discussion may include diversity, inclusion, determination, leadership, or kindness.
