Retooling for 2008
Nathan Gau sends in his take on what kind of team the Twins might be taking into the new stadium in 2010, and the years leading up to it. He covers what spots we'll need to fill, and what minor leaguers could fit the bill.

The fascinating world of switch-hitters
It is hard enough to hit a baseball, yet nearly one in five batters in the major leagues tries to hit a baseball from two sides of the plate. They are switch-hitters, and they all have a story about how and why they decided to turn around and hit from both sides.

Active Players In R.B.I Baseball, Tecmo Bowl, & Tecmo Super Bowl
Currently, Roger Clemens and Julio Franco are the last active players who were featured on R.B.I. Baseball. While Clemens has yet to officially pitch a major league game this year, it will happen in a few weeks after he is done warming up in the minors. Julio Franco, while only having 34 at bats this season is batting over .320! Not bad at all for a 47 year old.

Twins waiting on ballpark authority
Twins president Dave St. Peter said Friday that the club will begin looking at design details over the next two-to-three months, but must wait for Hennepin County to form a new ballpark authority, which will be within the next couple of weeks.
