Twins and Saints Hosting a Unique Tournament for Girls
The Twins and their triple-A affiliate the St. Paul Saints are partnering to host a unique baseball tournament for girls. The Twins and Saints plan to hold what is believed to be the state’s first-ever girls baseball tournament. The “Baseball For All Toni Stone Invitational Powered by the Minnesota Twins” is set for June 11-12, 2022 at Dunning Sports Complex in St. Paul.
Registration is open now for girls ages 7-14 at twinsbaseball.com/invitational. Registration will be on an individual basis and participants will then be divided into teams based on the 8-and-under, 10-and-under, 12-and-under and 14-and-under age groups; each team is guaranteed 3 games.
Nancy O'Brien is the Twins’ vice president, community engagement. She says.
"We are thrilled to partner with Baseball For All to deliver an opportunity for girls in the region – both baseball and softball players alike – to play in Minnesota’s first-ever girls baseball tournament,” “Providing girls with a chance to play and excel in the same game as their favorite Twins players is a wonderful way to continue the legacy of Toni Stone; to do so in the same month that Title IX turns 50 is truly inspirational for us and parallels our goal of removing barriers and providing equity in access.”
