MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins will hold a “Turn Back the Clock” game next week featuring their powder blue road uniforms from the 1980s.
The Twins announced Thursday their plans to commemorate 1984 with members of that team, Tom Brunansky and Kent Hrbek, throwing ceremonial first pitches. The game will be played June 5 against the Milwaukee Brewers. The first 10,000 customers through the gates will get a replica 1984 Kirby Puckett jersey in honor of the late Hall of Famer, who made his debut that year. Fans are being encouraged by the team to wear 1980s clothing as well.
Prior to the game, classic sports cars from the decade will be parked for viewing on the plaza outside Target Field.
