Now by definition, gifts don’t need to be a tangible object, and unless you plan on taking these players or practices home with you, they aren’t. However, looking at each one of them individually, they should combine to make watching baseball at Target Field and incredibly more exciting place to watch baseball this season.

Let’s get into it:

5. Torii Hunter: While Torii has already been signed by the Twins this offseason, he won’t be back in front of fans at Target Field until 2015. Although his signing brings a new bat to the lineup, and some mentorship capabilities to the clubhouse, one of the biggest reasons he was brought back was to end his career with the Twins. As a fan favorite, the club will benefit from ticket sales he brings in, and Twins Territorians will be able to relive some nostalgia through the man that used to make a habit of robbing home runs at the Metrodome.
