MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KMSP) - Friday night's Minnesota Twins game brought in fans from across the state, but when rain postponed the game to Saturday, the team's president went the extra mile to make sure two fans would still make it to the stadium.
It started with a social media exchange between Twins president Dave St. Peter and a Brainerd man earlier in the Friday, when St. Peter assured the fan on Twitter the game wouldn't get rained out. Later, he made it up to the fan, offering to put him and his daughter up in a hotel so they could stay in town for the game the next day.
The fan later tweeted that the Twins had not only paid for a room in the Loews Hotel in Minneapolis, but also upgraded their tickets to seats behind home plate.
Here's their full exchange:
We will play. https://t.co/vMPZavQuLh— Dave St. Peter (@TwinsPrez) September 18, 2015
