About the Minnesota Twins
Minnesota Twins Tickets
Few MLB team names have as much meaning as the Minnesota Twins. Sure, it’s not hard to guess that the team is named for the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, but their moniker goes much deeper than that – right down to the team’s origin on the East Coast.
The team was founded in D.C. as the Washington Nationals. Or the Washington Senators. No one could really decide, so they went by two “twin” names for decades. In 1959, they officially became the Senators – only to move to Minneapolis two years later and take on yet another a new name. Meanwhile, the new Washington Senators expansion team moved to Texas to become the Rangers. There wouldn’t be a Washington Nationals again until the Expos moved down from Montreal in 2005.
The Official Move
The Twins finally became the team they are today in 1961, and success was almost immediate. Players like Jim Perry, Jim Kaat, Rod Carew, Bob Allison, Harmon Killebrew, Zoilo Versalles, and Tony Oliva drove the twins to a 1965 pennant win that set the tone for the team going forward.
The '80s and '90s would see even more success for the newly-established Twins, with a World Series win in each decade. The Kirby Puckett years were great for Minnesota, especially with the help of star players like Frank Viola, Burt Blyleven, and Kent “Herbie” Hrbek.
Thoroughly Modern Minnesota Twins
While perhaps not at the top of their game today, the Twins are still a force to be reckoned with. It hasn’t been that long since the team dominated the Central Division with six wins in ten years from 2001 to 2010. The past decade has been hit or miss, but the team continues to fight toward a World Series win, with eager fans cheering them on.
