Minnesota Twins to Host ‘Prince Night’ in June
I'm not necessarily a baseball fan, but I would go to a major league baseball game just to sample the unique food at the concession stands. There is one more reason I would go - to get a limited edition Purple Rain umbrella.
The Minnesota Twins will host Prince Night at Target Field on Friday, June 16, 2017. Ten thousand umbrellas will be given away and during the 7th inning stretch. The lucky recipients will be asked to stand and open the umbrella for a moment of silence.
I would love to see that in person.
Prince's music will be played throughout the game and there will be a Prince-themed fireworks display at the end of the night. The players and staff will even wear a special purple, Prince-themed shirt that will be auctioned off online.
The proceeds will benefit AchieveMPLS, a non-profit organization that provides music grants to Minneapolis Public Schools. Prince was a very generous person. He gave money to many organizations and causes.
