Minnetonka, MN - Prep Baseball Minnesota, in collaboration with the Twins Community Fund, is thrilled to unveil the launch of Baseball Day Minnesota, a one-day extravaganza set for May 11th at Veterans Field in Minnetonka.

“I couldn’t be more excited for our first Baseball Day Minnesota. The state of Minnesota has high quality high school baseball and this is an excellent opportunity to highlight the programs, players, coaches, and communities involved,” said Andy Judkins, Prep Baseball Minnesota’s state director. “It’s a tremendous opportunity, with the support from the Twins Community Fund, to help shine more light on the game we all enjoy. Our inaugural event on May 11th will be an amazing day with many more to come in the future."

With the invaluable support of the Twins Community Fund, Baseball Day Minnesota aims to create lasting memories among baseball enthusiasts.
