Winter Meltdown And Diamond Award Tickets Available Now!

Our presale for the Winter Meltdown was a little too successful. We SOLD OUT our first batch of tickets. But if you want to really rub elbows with the Twins best while supporting a great cause, we're releasing a dozen more for people who sign up for the Twins 2018 Diamond Awards. Just get your tickets here, and let them know you want to sit at the Twins Daily table in the comments. What are the Diamond Awards?
They're awesome, truly a bucket list item for Twins fans. It’s the night before Twins Fest (Thursday, January 18) at The Depot. It’ll be a star-studded affair including an awards dinner celebrating the Diamond Awards winners like Brian Dozier, Ervin Santana, Byron Buxton, Trevor Hildenberger and Joe Mauer. Plus, this year you can win a chance to attend a future Twins game with local celebrities like GB Leighton, Lindsay Whalen or Andrew Zimmern.

Tickets are $150 each but the proceeds go to the University of Minnesota to cure some pretty terrible diseases, like ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), ataxia, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, and Parkinson’s disease. It is a great cause and a fantastic time and Twins Daily would love to share it with you. To join us, just write that you want to be at the Twins Daily table in the “comments” box at the end of the signup form. Or, if you’ve already signed up, let me know in the comments below and I’ll work with the organizers to make sure you are seated with us.

We would love to get a big group together and talk a lot of baseball or get your thoughts on the site. So to sweeten the pot, you'll also get free tickets to the Winter Meltdown on January 20th, from 4:30 to 7:30 at Brother's Bar and Grill, for you and a friend. We already have 500 Twins fans joining us, and right now this is the only way to still get tickets to this sold out event. And if you already have tickets, we’ll give you a refund on the tickets you already bought.

This is truly a special opportunity to attend one of the Twins premier annual events that celebrates their team and their fans. (Actually, it’s a special opportunity to attend TWO such events.) Plus, it’s an exceptional cause and a chance to see the best of the Twins on one of the coldest weekends of the year.

Let’s recharge our batteries and get ready for a great weekend and a great year together. If you have any questions or concerns, use the comments. But please click the link below and give it a try this year. You won’t regret it.

Last year we had one table and this year I expect at least three. I'd like to get as many as five. If you have any questions, make sure to list them below.



I've gone the last four years (maybe five?), and it is a wonderful event. Silent auction. Lots of current and former Twins players. An awards banquet. Good food. And lots and lots of great Twins talk...

It's also a new organizer, and I know one of his focuses early on was to leverage the accessibility of the players. We also had a blast with our table last year. 

I'm nominated for "Nicest Smile."
