Balls for Charity... and Plaques

Our buddy John Bonnes of Twins Geek passed along this press release with the hopes that some of the Minnesota Twins fans who read BLB may be as interested in this as we are...

To celebrate the Inaugural Season of Target Field as well as to raise awareness and money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Minnesota, which grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions, Nikco Sports will be donating two unique pieces of Twins history...
"A limited edition baseball featuring a stunning color photo of the new Target Field on one of the panels, and important historic information printed on the other panels, along with the official Inaugural Season logo is being produced to commemorate the first game at the new ballpark on April 12. Only 5,000 baseballs will be made, priced at $39.95, and each comes with a handsome acrylic display case. From each sale, $4 will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota.

In addition, a limited edition framed photo plaque that features a picture of the new Target Field, along with a special inset photo of Twins All-Star catcher and fan favorite Joe Mauer and a piece of actual dirt from the ballpark’s new infield will also be made available to fans. Only 2,010 double matted photos will be produced, and each comes with an engraved nameplate. It is priced at $89.95. Fans can order either commemorative at 1-800-345-2868 or by visiting nikcosports.com."
Nikco Sports has raised more than $1.7 million for children’s charities in the past, including several projects in Minnesota. We hope all you Twins fans out there enjoy Target Field this season, and we hope you are also interested in this offer, as it is for a genuinely good cause.

The sweet baseball and awesome plaque can each be purchased through Nikco Sports.

Your blog is awesome- I love the babes of baseball! I will definitely be checking back in because I think learning about everything baseball will help me in my mission to watch or listen to every Red Sox game this season. Trying to go from pinkhat to blue here in Boston.
