With the Minnesota Twins heading into the post-season beginning tomorrow, the team has unveiled the 2020 edition of the Homer Hanky.

The coronavirus pandemic had forced Major League Baseball to shorten the usual 162-game regular season to just sixty games -- all played without fans in any of the league's ball parks.

The Twins finished the regular season with a record of 36-24, and an American League Central Division championship for the second straight year, finishing just one game ahead of both the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox.

The original Homer Hanky was born during the Minnesota Twins 1987 playoff run, that eventually resulted in a World Series Championship.

The Twins will host the Houston Astros in the first round of the 2020 Major League Baseball playoffs starting tomorrow. As the number-three seed in the American League, the Twins will host the sixth-seeded Astros for the best-of-three series at Target Field.

Go Twins!
