Meeting Jim Leyland in Minneapolis. What a guy!

My husband and I own an event planning company in Minneapolis/St. Paul.  We were staffing a function at the Marriott City Center, in Downtown Minneapolis, when a familiar looking man approached our table.  I wasn’t sure who he was, but my husband immediately knew that it was Tigers’ manager Jim Leyland.  The Tigers were staying at the hotel, during a late season series vs. the Twins. They had just finished a Saturday night game and the team recently arrived back at the Marriott.

Torii Hunter entertains fans of the Midwest and West Coast

Los Angeles Angels' CF Torii Hunter is widely considered one of the most gregarious and outgoing players in all of baseball.

Meeting the late great Kirby Puckett

Amid all the excitement and fanfare surrounding the opening of Target Field, there is one element of Twins baseball that is noticeably missing from the scene.  This element is the presence of the great Kirby Puckett.  I join all Twins fans in wishing he could be present to witness this great team and stadium.  I appreciate the respect shown to Kirby by both the Twins and Target Field, during this time. I also enjoyed seeing his ex-wife and son present at the opening game festivities.

Ryan Braun showing appreciation to the Milwaukee fans

Milwaukee Brewers' LF Ryan Braun has developed into one of the best players in all of baseball.  The Los Angeles native and University of Miami alum has absolutely found a home deep in the heart of the Midwest.  Braun's comfort level with the state of Wisconsin is evident in his signing of a contract that will keep him in Milwaukee through 2015.

Disgraced Roger Clemens hanging with fans at Astros camp

Very few celebrities have experienced a more rapid fall from grace than Roger Clemens. The 11-time All-Star was once considered the best pitcher of his generation and one of the greatest ever to stand on a mound.  354 wins, 4,672 strikeouts and six Cy Young Awards put Clemens in a class by himself.

Last Monday, American League Most Valuable Player Joe Mauer signed an eight-year/$184 million contract extension with the Minnesota Twins.

The St. Paul native, who grew up eight miles from the Twins former home ballpark, the Metrodome and nine miles from brand new Target Field, always preferred to remain with his hometown team.
