Twins players create unforgettable ballpark memories for underprivileged children
Forty Minneapolis-area children attend tonight’s Twins game as personal guests of Bonser, Crain, Everett, Nathan, Morneau and Young

MINNEAPOLIS -— Prior to tonight’s game at the Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota Twins players Boof Bonser, Jesse Crain, Adam Everett, Joe Nathan, Justin Morneau and Delmon Young will provide everlasting memories to a group of underprivileged children as the Major League Baseball Players Trust’s “Buses for Baseball” program visits the Twin Cities.

Courtesy of the players’ charitable foundation, 40 children from various programs supported by Minneapolis-based not-for-profit, Volunteers of America, will receive round-trip transportation to the game, meet the players, and receive free tickets, food, beverages and souvenirs. “Buses for Baseball” provides many of the children with their first chance to attend a Major League Baseball game.

This season, “Buses for Baseball”, a program administered by the Players Trust and underwritten by Majestic Athletic, a division of VF Imagewear, Inc., will provide transportation and personal greetings for more than 1,500 underprivileged children attending Major League Baseball games as invited guests of their big league heroes.

The Players Trust enjoys support from the Minnesota Twins organization in providing this unique, up close and personal opportunity to share the thrill of Major League Baseball with those less fortunate.
