Neighborhood baseball fields, nature preserve among MN-area nonprofits receiving some of the $8m largesse the Twins are donating as All Star hosts.
"The All-Star Game this summer at Target Field is bringing more than just baseball's top talent to the Twin Cites. The Minnesota Twins and Major League Baseball announced Friday that a number of local groups would be receiving donations as part of the 2014 All-Star community legacy effort. The Twins declined to disclose individual contribution amounts, but said collective giving to local projects and national charities equals $8 million." -- Andy Rathbun, the St. Paul Pioneer Press
