Education: Learning Through Baseball

Nominate an Education Hero Today

The Minnesota Twins want to celebrate education professionals, teachers, administrators, or volunteers in Twins Territory! We are asking fans to nominate an education hero by telling us how they have gone above and beyond, advanced social equity, and supported children in their education.

An education hero includes but is not limited to a teacher, school administrator, youth worker, coach, parent, youth mentor, etc.

Select nominees will receive a Twins Swag Bag and will be showcased on Minnesota Twins social platforms.

Reading is Powerful Presented by Papa Johns

The Minnesota Twins believe in the power of education and literacy. Each year, members of the Twins Front Office, including senior level executives, visit over 30 schools around the Twin Cities Metro. While in the classroom, Twins staff read a baseball-themed book and lead a discussion with the students about values and lessons from the book. Topics of discussion may include diversity, inclusion, determination, leadership, or kindness.

For more information on how the Minnesota Twins can bring Reading is Powerful to your K – 5 classroom, please contact Chelsey Falzone at ChelseyFalzone@twinsbaseball.com.

Hennepin County communities use Twins merchandise as an incentive to encourage participation, and schools vie for the opportunity to have an exercise session led by Twins trainers and players.

Stop Bullying

The Minnesota Twins take bullying seriously. The Twins believe there is no place for bullying in our schools, or in society as a whole. If you are being bullied, there is help available and you should not feel alone.
