Twins clinch, local artist writes a rockin' song to celebrate

Way to clinch the AL Central, Minnesota Twins!  I've heard that if you listen to 89.3 The Current in the Twin Cities right around now, you might get to hear the new unofficial Twins anthem playing on the radio:

Performed by The Baseball Project, featuring 2 members of REM, Craig Finn of The Hold Steady, and Minnesota native Linda Pitmon on drums, the tune is an ode to Minnesota baseball, and it's actually a pretty rockin' tune.  I give it my full endorsement.

Now the Twins just need to get home field advantage throughout the playoffs so that they can rock this tune every night at Target Field during the 7th inning stretch.


  1. eh, not going to lie... it's not as good as Prince's "Purple and Gold"

  2. Well, he's Prince. That alone is gonna make his song better. Plus he was writing about football, which, as "Are You Ready For Some Football!?" has taught us, lends itself pretty well to pump-up music.
