Twins Organization deserves supreme credit. I think I have also posted this fact a couple of years ago, BUT it bears repeating. I think it was 2 years ago, although it may be 3, I got this idea that it would be cool to get the Twins to write my father a letter recognizing his long time fandom. I had no clue who to contact, so I sent an e-mail to Seth and LaVelle. A day or so later, Seth e-mailed me a response he had gotten from Mr. St. Peter requesting details, a day later I got an e-mail from a Ms. Glo Westerdal, which I think came from the LaVelle connection. I sent the particulars, feeling pretty good about myself, and suspecting my 81/82 year-old father would really appreciate his "letter". A couple of weeks later, a Fex-EX/UPS truck stops with a package, we weren’t expecting any deliveries. The package was from the Twins, for my father. It included a caligraphed note card thanking him for his lifelong support, included a Walter Johnson Bobble-head, a Harmon Killabrew autographed picture, a Twins hat and a Mauer doll, plus 4/5 yearbooks and sundry other info. Remember, I was just looking for a letter. When I gave it to my father, he was over the moon. His gratitude to the Twins still comes up often when we discuss the Twins, which is usually every phone call. Thanks again Twins, the Dragon
