“Bill Dailey, Won’t You Please Come In.” Billy Ball. The Lumber Company. Ten Acres of Roof. Homer Hankies. Bobblehead dolls. Piranhas. Twins Territory. In 1961, the Twins brought major league baseball to the upper Midwest, becoming the first team to claim with its name not just a city but a region. In We’re Gonna Win, Twins! longtime sports reporter and columnist Doug Grow chronicles a half century of Twins baseball, season by season, from the scrappy stars of Metropolitan Stadium through two World Series in the Metrodome to the opening of a new era at Target Field.
Join the University of Minnesota Press from 2 - 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 24th, as we celebrate the publication of this incredible insider book at Town Ball Tavern, Target Field (Fifth Street Gate Entrance).
