With no Minnesota Twins’ baseball in sight for 2020, Fox Sports North will be airing some of the team’s most famous classic games.
The Minnesota Twins and the rest of Major League Baseball have suspended play for at least until the middle of April, with reports saying it’s unlikely to return until at least May. With no other sports available to watch, Twins fans have struggled to find things to do.
To help solve that problem, Fox Sports North (FSN), the television station where most of the team’s games are played, is putting some of the Twins’ best games back on TV. The station announced earlier today that they would be playing thirty-four games over the month of April.
There are excellent games spanning from 1965-2019, and FSN did a good job of getting them. Some of the best games available will include:
- The 1965 All-Star Game: The first All-Star Game played at the old Met Stadium (where the Mall of America now sits)
- The 1985 All-Star Game: The first All-Star Game at the Metrodome.
- Games 2, 6, and 7 from the 1987 World Series
- Games 1, 2, 6, and 7 from the 1991 World Series.
The featured games will also include some games from Target Field, including the 2014 All-Star Game, Jim Thome hitting the first walk-off in Target Field history, and Miguel Sano hitting the Bomba Squad’s only walk-off home run.
Having the ability to watch Twins games again will make a lot of Twins fans happy, even if they aren’t live ones. It will be a fun experience for Twins fans to reminisce on games they remember and learn about games they don’t. In addition, younger Twins fans who missed out on the greatness of 1987 and 1991 get to see what they’re missing. A true win-win.
Here’s a full list of the games we’ll be able to watch, when they’ll be on, and what platform:
