Toronto Blue Jays 3 — Minnesota Twins 2

Target Field — Minneapolis, MN

May 19, 2016

The second game of the 2016 didn’t come to me until May 19th. That’s right, over a month after Opening Day, and quite honestly, I wasn’t really missing it. I was still getting my head in the right place and focusing on getting things to an OK state. I don’t know if they are quite there yet (as I write this), but things have only gotten better — as you’ll be able to see in the frequency of my baseball games and the ability to remember more and more details.

Fors the second year in a row, the Twins did a Star Wars bobblehead giveaway, and the star was none other than…


It is sadly ironic that I write this blog post just days after Trevor was outrighted off of the Twins roster. There is some happiness in this though, as I am able to still look back fondly and relive him being a Twin (even if only until the season begins).
