Watch Game 1 of the ALDS with Twins Daily!

Act fast! We're almost sold out! Today we're adding two new giveaways for anyone that registers early. First, you get a BOGO card for a free craft beer at 612 Brewery's taproom. Also, if you're among the first 300 people to show up at Brothers, you'll get a Twins Daily or Gleeman and the Geek pint glass. That's all on top of the free 612 Brew craft beer, and chances to win a Rod Carew autographed bat and Tony Oliva signed hat! But there are only 30 tickets or so left so reserve your tickets now!
From Wednesday
Another great prize added and 120 more tickets released!

We sold out, so we're bringing a fifth 612 keg, plus you can win a Tony Oliva signed Twins hat if you wear Twins gear. But remember, you only get the free 612 craft beer and a chance to win the Rod Carew autographed bat if you get a ticket, and there are only 120 left. Reserve your tickets now!

 
From Tuesday
The game time has been announced, and Twins Daily members have already claimed half the available tickets - and why not? Yesterday we announced a free 612 Brew craft beer if you sign up and show up. Today, we're announcing a Rod Carew autographed bat, because Rod told the Yankees to stick it. (That story is below.) Tickets are free, but you have to get one before they're all gone to get the beer and to win the bat!

Game time has been announced as 6:07 PM, so the event will start around 5:30 in the basement of Brothers Bar & Grill. All you have to do is check-in to get:

1. Your ticket for a 612 Craft Beer
2. Your raffle ticket for the Rod Carew signed bat
3. If you're wearing Twins gear, you can win a Tony Oliva signed hat!
4. Yet more tomorrow!

Rod Carew was courted by the Yankees back in 1979, after he was traded to the Angels. That was the time right after free agency had started, so owner George Steinbrenner was collecting all the big stars, like Reggie Jackson and Catfish Hunter. But he didn't get Carew, who re-signed with the Angels for five years and $4 million.

Steinbrenner tried to blame Carew, saying he didn't understand the privilege of playing for the Yankees. He also tried to trade for him before he went to the Angels, when he was still with the Twins. Ironically, to escape all the trade talk at that time, Carew went to stay with his mother - in Brooklyn. He read about being traded to the Angels in La Guardia Airport.


 
From Monday
I don’t know if we’ll win or lose. I don’t know if we’ll get 50 people or 500. But I know we’re going to be watching Game 1 versus the Yankees together. (And Twins Daily is buying the kegs.)

Tickets are FREE. Just signup here, and you can join us at Brothers in Minneapolis and get a free 612 Brew craft beer, courtesy of Twins Daily. We’ll watch the game, and share the highs and lows with other Twins fans. Plus, there will be some giveaways and other stuff that we will announce the rest of the week.

Join the writers of Twins Daily and hundreds of other Twins fans at Brothers Bar & Grill in Minneapolis to watch the Twins finally stick it to the Yankees.

You can also just show up that day, but then you don’t get the free beer or any of the other goodies. Also, given that we’ve had 500-600 people show up for our Winter Meltdown parties, there is at least some chance that we could sell out and not be able to let people in who haven’t already reserved a ticket.

So be safe and grab one now. Bring a friend, or a spouse, a family member or the folks from work who you just discovered are also Twins fans. But whatever you do...

Do you ever hold events in the summer when I am around (somewhat).

Chief Jr II and mate are going, wish I could join them.

Sorry about that. I fixed earlier this afternoon. 

 

 

Wish I could join.

But for those who can’t attend, and want to watch in the company of others, there will be game threads to participate for each game. :) But of course!

Is it true that the only way to watch the game Friday is on MLB Network?

 

If it is, I cannot say how upsetting that is for those of us who do not have it.Could consider coming to your event, but being out in downtown Minneapolis at 10pm is way past my comfort zone.

I am with you on the TV lineup. MLB network isn't even available for us up here in NW Minnesota unless we have satellite tv. I blame the Yankees. Seems reasonable as I have blamed them for lots of things for decades.

I will take my life in my hands and come on down for it. :)

Omg, I wish I could join!
I hope have a great time and karmas is with the Twins. Wish I cpu;d make the 4 hr trip. Will be there in spirit. Putting it on my bucket list as I know there will more opportunities.
I guess paying $188 buckaroos a month for Xfinity Cable finally has paid off. Twins on channel 873! I know I have the NFL network, didn't know I had MLB too yeah.

You may have seen the other thread, but MLB Network is available on YouTube TV, and they have a free 7 day trial. They support pretty much every device these days too.

 

After the trial, if you want to pay $50 for the month, you'd get all the postseason games over YouTube TV too, including DVR (to skip the numerous commercials!).

EXTREMELY surprised MLB is putting the game somewhere other than ESPN or one of the networks. But I happen to work in the industry, and the MLB is usually part of a cable "package" that would include other channels such as the NFL network, NBA, etc. The cost for adding said package is usually pretty cheap. And while I can't speak for other companies, you can usually add said packages and then remove them almost immediately. You would pay pennies for adding the channel for a day or a couple of days. At worst, you'd pay $10+ dollars for 1 month if the series continues on the MLB network.
