If you have plans for May 18, I beg you to cancel those plans and get your but to Target Field. The Minnesota Twins have announced a special promotion that is only for die-hard Minnesota sports fans. May 18 will be Sid Hartman Day at Target Field.
There will be a pregame ceremony to honor the great man. Sid will be a part of a special WCCO-AM Sports Huddle broadcast from Target Plaza with special guests and a Q and A session with the fans. The Twins are even sweetening the pot for those who buy a special ticket package.
First 1,000 special ticket package buyers get a Sid Hartman bobblehead. The first 10,000 fans at Target Field on May 18 will get a ceramic coffee mug featuring famous Sid Hartman quotes, no word on if that is limited to Twins quotes or not.
Side note: Really hope this is on the mug:
The May 18 game is a Sunday, 1:10 first pitch game. The Twins take on the American League West’s Seattle Mariners.
