THE BIG MESSAGE TODAY WAS BIG CHANGE FOR THE TWINS. OF COURSE AFTER THE LAST COUPLE OF SEASONS … FANS WILL TELL YOU THERE ISN’T ANYWHERE ELSE TO GO BUT UP. FRESH FACES IN CHARGE AND IN THE CLUBHOUSE ARE QUICK POSITIVES TO POINT TO AND IF THE CLUBS SELLING IT … THE PLAYERS ARE PIMPING IT. KYLE GIBSON – I THINK WE HAVE A LOT OF REASON TO BE OPTOMISTIC. PAUL MOLITER IS A GREAT BASEBALL MIND AT THE HELM. THEY’VE BROUGHT IN NEAL ALLEN WHO I’VE TALKED TO AND THAT’S GOING TO BE EXCITING, AND TO SEE WHAT HE’S GOING TO BRING TO THE TABLE. BRINGING BACK TORII AND SIGNING SANTANA. SIGNING THOSE VETERANS IS WHAT WE NEED. CALEB THIELBAR – OBVIOUSLY TORII HAS PLAYED ON A LOT OF TEAMS AND HE’S BEEN THAT VETERAN LEADER ON A LOT OF THOSE TEAMS. AND I THINK HE’LL BE ABLE TO BRING THAT VETERAN PRESENCE IN TO THE CLUBHOUSE AND I THINK THAT’S SOMETHING THAT WE NEED. DAN GLADDEN – TOUGH DECISIONS TO BE MADE AT SPRING TRAINING. I JUST THINK THAT THE BALANCE OF THE CLUB, WITH PAUL MOLITOR … I THINK YOU’RE GOING TO SEE A BALANCE OF POWER AND SPEED. GLADDEN WITH PLENTY TO SAY ABOUT THE OPENING AT CENTER FIELD FOR THE TWINS … SAYING AARON HICKS CAN BE GREAT IF HE CAN MATCH THE OFFENSIVE PRODUCTION WITH THE DEFENSIVE SKILLS HE’S SHOWN FOR THE TWINS IN THE LAST YEAR. BUT THAT THE CLUB NEEDS THAT POWER AND SPEED AT THE PLATE CONSISTENTLY. MOORHEAD BOYS BASKETBALL BACK AT HOME TONIGHT HOSTING FERGUS FALLS ….

SENIOR JUSTIN TONSFELDT TAKES CARE OF THAT THOUGH. OFF AN IN BOUNDS FROM THE BASELINE … SMOOTH SAILING ON THE TWO PUTS THE SPUDS BACK ON TOP. HE MAKES IT A FOUR POINT LEAD WITH ANOTHER JUMPER FROM THE TOP OF THE KEY. MOORHEAD UP BY FOUR WITH UNDER A MINUTE TO PLAY TILL HALF.
