Funded By Fans And The Minnesota Twins Tire Cover
In 1987 and 1991, the Minnesota Twins broke baseball records by winning the World Series by winning all four home games, in both seasons. It’s surprising to know that there was a time where, regardless of this apparent home-field advantage, the Twins believed that the Metrodome was obsolete and the team began to threaten to move to another city for financial reasons.
In 202, the team almost disbanded because Major League Baseball determined that, relative to other franchises in the league, the Twins were not particularly financially viable as a team. In response to this, the Target Field was built to support the Twins and the team has been doing much better financially since then, with many fans still out purchasing Twins merchandise such as a Minnesota Twins tire cover.
