One of the things that makes it fun to go to baseball games is the fun nights with promotions. It's a great way for businesses to get their name in front of people and for fans to get free stuff at the game.

The Minnesota Twins have released a list of the special nights and the sponsors. Some of the promotions are interesting, like a Twins Star Wars shirt. The tickets for the games will go on sale for the first time this season on Saturday February 17th.

There is a presale the day before for the MN Twins app.
