  1. Traveling in the Midwest League: South Bend

    We just finished up a three game set in South Bend, IN. Although the series didn't end the way we wanted (we lost two of three), I wanted to share some of the trip.

    Thursday-Hecklers

    We arrived in South Bend around noon for a 7 ET game. I wasn't sure what to expect of the stadium and was pleasantly surprised to see turf covering everything except the mound and the bases. Playing a number of games at the Metrodome in my career I felt right at home. A large jumbotron ...

  5. My First Professional Offseason: Finding a Job

    My name is AJ Pettersen. I will be blogging for twinsdaily.com throughout the summer.
