Baseball team gets renamed in honor of a Twins' player. Just not who you think.

It is really wonderful to see professional baseball players to be good corporate citizens and invest in their communities, appreciating what they did for them in their earlier steps on the way to becoming stars.

From the Twins' world, local Minnesotans, Joe Mauer and Glen Perkins have donated a lot of their money and time to several local causes. But they never had a team named after them. A third Twins' lefty just did.

LHP Brian Duensing, a graduate of Millard South at Omaha, Nebraska (the place where he met his wife as well), [URL="http://www.omaha.com/article/20130611/PREPZONE/706119860/1001#millard-south-legion-teams-named-after-new-sponsor-brian-duensing-s-no-52"]has donated a large sum of money to his local High School Legion team[/URL] to be used for uniforms and baseball-related expenses. In return, the team will be named the 52s (his uniform number) in his honor.

Always good to see the players of your favorite team do the right thing. Congratulations to Brian Duensing!

    Pretty cool. Good for Brian and, uh, Ms. Brian.
