Minneapolis’ devotion to the late funk icon Prince continues, this time with the city’s baseball team. The Minnesota Twins announced that they will soon begin selling official Prince-branded merchandise. According to the Star Tribune, fans will be able to purchase Prince shirts, hats, and baseballs as early as April 5 when the Twins go up in a game against the Seattle Mariners. As of now, the Prince-branded items will be exclusively sold at the home ballpark Target Field. The team will continue the Prince celebrations on June 8th with their second annual Prince night; the first 10,000 fans to arrive at the stadium receive a commemorative inflatable guitar shaped to look like Prince’s iconic symbol. “Along with our fans, we look forward to celebrating the legacy of a man who brought an international spotlight to our great city,” said Minnesota Twins CEO Dave St. Peter.
