The Minnesota Twins have done some creative ticket promotions in recent years — like “I Love Venezuela” day with Eduardo Escobar and “Big Sexy Night” with Bartolo Colon — but the one announced by the team on Monday might be the most anticipated one.
They’re doing “An Evening with La Tortuga.”
There are five levels of tickets available:
- Home Plate Box Middle – $69
- Home Plate Box High – $64
- Left Field Bleachers – $28
- The Deck – $34
- Field View – $21
Each ticket comes with a shirt with sizes ranging from small to extra large.
