Twins open home season with temps in 50s

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Baseball fans will enjoy temperatures in the 50s when the Minnesota Twins open at home against Oakland.

That's quite a contrast to the 10 inches of snow that fell at Target Field last week. And temperatures barely made it above freezing at last year's home opener.

A couple of Twins greats, Tony Oliva and Kent Herbek, will open the gates at 1 p.m. Monday.

The ceremonial first pitch will come from Bark had Abdi, the actor nominated for an Oscar for his role in "Captain Phillips."

And, the national anthem will be performed by local singer and actress Thomasina Petrus.

The Twins are coming off a 10-7 win on Sunday against the Indians in Cleveland. First pitch at home is at 3:10 p.m.
