Twins Helping Lynx

The Minnesota Twins are stepping up to the plate to support their neighbors across the street.

The Twins have purchased 500 tickets for the Minnesota Lynx playoff opener on Friday night against Seattle. The upper level tickets will be available for free to those who call the Lynx ticket office.

Twins closer and Minnesota native Glen Perkins cut some radio ads to congratulate the Lynx as they go for their third straight WNBA finals appearance.

The Lynx finished the season with a WNBA-best 26-8 record to earn homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs.
