We've always had a strategy to get the Big Ten tournament ... We have a great relationship with John Anderson at the University of Minnesota. It's such a good relationship that the University of Minnesota played the first ever game at Target Field. So we've got a good relationship with the university, and he's run a fantastic program over there, so we were lucky enough to make it work.
Hosting the Big Ten Tournament is another example of how Target Field is a community asset -- not only for the Twins but for the state and the University of Minnesota. I think it's neat it's the first time the tournament has been held in a Major League stadium. I think every parent and every kid and every fan who is going to be lucky enough to make it here is going to have a very special time.More quotes »
