Mauer, Buxton, Blyleven & Hughes At TwinsFest (Videos)

Friday night, was on hand at the 2014 version of TwinsFest, an annual three-day winter event put on by the Minnesota Twins. Created in 1989, the festivities include appearances by many current and former players, who spend the weekend signing autographs and interacting with fans. A large memorabilia show is also a highlight of the affair. With the exception of one year, TwinsFest has always been held at the Metrodome.  Now that the Twins old home is being torn down as part of the construction a new Minnesota Vikings stadium, Target Field served as this year's host site.

Below are original videos of Twins players from the event.
