Big, Exciting News: Twinkie Town to Host Live Chat With MiLB Player

New, 13 comments

Hi all! I come to you with some great news -- I have had the chance to set up a live chat with Twins minor league prospect AJ Pettersen this coming Monday, May 12 at 7 pm CST! If you don't know, AJ is a Minnesota native (born in Minnetonka) and attended the University of Minnesota, where he played for the Gophers. He signed with the Twins system in 2011, and has been playing SS, 2B, LF (and more recently, CF) ever since. He started this season with the Fort Myers Miracle, but has since moved to AA New Britain.

How Will This Work?

What the 'chat' will consist of is comments posted by you, the readers, that AJ can read and respond to. Obviously, we expect you all on your best behavior, as this is something he's taking time out of his schedule to do with us. We'd also like to be able to invite more minor league players, so a good chat will go far!

When Is This Happening?

Monday, May 12! I'll have a thread up around 6:30 where you can start posting questions ahead of time, and when AJ joins us, you can feel free to continue asking. He'll be joining us around 7 pm -- and again, this is CST.

This is Cool, But I Can't Be There! :(

That's too bad! No, really, more participation would be awesome, but I do have a solution for you -- Twitter! We'll be taking some questions from Twitter and posting them for AJ as well, so if you're not able to make it at that time, check back to see if he got around to your question anyway. We're just really kind around here.

So, now that you've been briefed on the fun things coming your way, make sure you're here on Monday! I'm sure AJ will be able to give some great insight in to the minor league system and what kinds of shenanigans go on that the fans don't always get a chance to see. Make sure you also follow AJ on Twitter! And if you're not already following Twinkie Town for some reason, do that too!
