Reason No. 5 to Love the new Minnesota Twins System: Minor League Baseball is back
I finish off this list with the most basic reason ever, but probably the most true: Minor League Baseball is back, and more exciting than ever. Minor League baseball has often felt far away to Twins fans, and while it’s fun to check in on top prospects now and then, minor league baseball mattered even less than Town Ball in Minnesota.
That’s no longer the case. Minor League Baseball was taken from us in 2020, and for me at least, I really felt like I missed out. As the song goes:
“Don’t it always seem to go, That you don’t know what you’ve got til its gone”
That was my experience for 2020. I will be following the Minnesota Twins’ minor league teams far more often in 2021, and now that the Triple-AAA team is now right across the Mississippi River, I might even get season tickets.
The Minnesota Twins and the St. Paul Saints have given us a one of a kind opportunity that we haven’t ever had before, and I plan to take advantage of it. I hope all the other Minnesota Twins fans do too.
