From Kelsie Smith of the St. Paul Pioneer Press:
On whiteboard in Twins clubhouse, where times for stretch & BP are generally written was one more directive today: “Call your mom.”
Happy Mother’s Day from us here at HardballTalk. Enjoy a full slate of afternoon and evening baseball games featuring pink cleats, pink socks, pink undershirts, pink bats and pink batting gloves. But, first and most importantly, call your mom.
