Getting Ready

It kicks off tomorrow- The Post Season 2010.

But first a quick look back at Sunday. The last regular season game at the new Target Field and what a wonderfully beautiful day it was.

As usual, Kirby Puckett stood by his gate in his immortal stance, inviting and challenging us to have a great day at the park.

A class act on Sunday. Toronto Blue Jays manager, Cito Gaston was managing his last game prior to retirement. So the Twins at manager Ron Gardenhire's suggestion had a special presentation to Cito. Here(from L - R) Gardy, former Twins and Jays pitcher Jack Morris, St. Paul native and Blue Jay MVP Paul Molitor greeting Gaston. Gardy is pointing to Orlando Hudson, current Twin who also played for Gaston. They gave a check from the Twins Community Fund to Gaston's charity.


Joe Mauer. Getting ready. So cool and calm as the ball is at his glove.

Left-handed pitcher Glen Perkins pitching to home run star (54 of them this year) Jose Bautista.

No, we didn't win. No big deal, it was a great afternoon with my daughter at the old ball game. I guess I did some good parenting with a true baseball fan for a daughter- and one who enjoys going with the old guy.

Which brings me to Thursday afternoon at 5:07 central time. The Yankees are coming to town and that will be Game 2 of the AL Division Series. Yes, we have tickets.....

Right there behind home plate in section 315.

And one last post, for old time's sake. The bottom of the 8th inning always made me feel good about who my employer is as they are an advertiser right there at the ball game.
And there's more to come. It's been a great summer and now it's October!
