While it's Grandma's Marathon weekend in the Northland, there are a lot of people hitting the road and heading out of town for some fun.  The Minnesota Twins game would be a great Friday night alternative as it's Prince Night at Target Field.

Prince Night will provide fans with the following festivities:

  • The first 10,000 fans to Target Field will receive a limited edition “Purple Rain” umbrella, pictured above.
  • Immediately following the seventh inning stretch, fans in possession of the Purple Rain umbrella will remain standing and open the umbrella for a special moment in remembrance of Prince.
  • Twins players and staff will wear a special Prince themed T-shirt during batting practice.
  • The T-shirts will be auctioned off at twinsbaseball.com to benefit Achieve Minneapolis for music grants in Minneapolis Public Schools.
  • Prince-themed fireworks will take place following the conclusion of the game against the defending AL Central champion Cleveland Indians.
