Background: The Minnesota Twins was started by Calvin Griffith in 1960. After just one season of playing ball, the Twins were off to a strong start and made second place in 1962. The Twins play at Target Field with T.C. Bear cheering them on from the sidelines.
The Minnesota Twin’s belief statement is I Will Change the World. This phrase reminds the team and all people that we all have the power to make a positive change that can create a substantial difference in the world. Every person has something valuable to contribute to society.
