Twins Daily Swarms Diamond Awards

The Twins, the local Baseball Writers’ Association of America and the University of Minnesota’s hosted the Diamond Awards last night. The semi-formal event, hosted at The Depot, presented 2019 year-end awards to Twins players and community members and raised money to fight neurological diseases like ALS, ataxia, and muscular dystrophy. Twins Daily was right in the middle of it all, hosting a table, volunteering and contributing to the organization of a great event.
Proceeds from the Diamond Awards fund innovative research fighting brain, nerve and muscle disorders at the University of Minnesota. The event honors Minnesota Twins Bob Allison, who battled ataxia, and was featured in a video shown at the beginning of the presentation.

Twins Daily hosted a table, but also had readers, followers and members involved in several volunteer positions to help make the event go smoothly. Over 20 Twins Daily members attended.

The staged awards ceremony featured Dick Bremer and Marney Gellner plus several award presenters such as Derek Falvey, Thad Levine, Kent Hrbek and even Terry Ryan presenting awards to players like Luiz Arraez, Mitch Garver and Taylor Rogers.

The event broke records for attendance and money raised, and has become a staple of Twins Fest week.
