I received another update from my uncle on Sunday.

While he’s from the Twin Cities, he is currently spending time in Fort Myers, Fla., for Twins’ spring training.
 
He has been sharing photos and stories with me. This most recent batch comes from the Twins’ opener on Saturday against the Tampa Bay Rays.
 
Here are his thoughts from the game:
 
“Perfect day.  Bats seemed a little light and Twins won big in later innings (Nishioka was hero with a triple).  Pitching looked decent, especially Perkins who needed about a dozen pitches to get through the inning.  All in all a decent outing for first day.  The first hot dog was outstanding.”
 
Minnesota is off to a 2-2 start. The Twins defeated the Rays the next day, before falling to the Red Sox in two consecutive games.

The Twins have the Rays again today.
