Stadium Guide by Baseball Tripper
Believe it or not the Minnesota Twins are also one of the founding teams of the Major Leagues. Although they certainly did not go by this team name from the very beginning, in fact they were originally known as the Washington Senators calling Washington DC home all the way back in 1901. The franchise was not a part of Minnesota until 1961 when the name Minnesota Twins was adopted in the franchise and it has been there ever since. During their time they have had a few unique ballparks especially with the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome and now Target Field.
Although they have been around for quite a long time they do not really have the Championships to show it. They have won the World Series a total of three times, two of which came under the name Minnesota Twins, but one of these championships was all the way back in 1924 when they were still known as the Washington Senators. Despite their lack of overall championships, they still have had some of the best batters in the entire league with 19 American League batting Champions in their lineup throughout the years.
What also makes this team unique is its abundance of uniforms. Currently during this season alone there are four alternate jerseys to choose from which comes out to a total of 6 including their home and away jerseys. Their jerseys come in all different colors but it certainly keeps the fans guessing at the end of the day. Some of the franchise’s famous players include Harmon Killebrew, Rod Carew, Torii Hunter, Joe Mauer, and Johan Santana. On this list all of the jerseys have been retired by the team except for Johan Santana. We expect his jersey to be retired by the franchise within a few years because he was one of the best pitchers to ever come through the organization.
