The North Dakota Tourism staff - it was Halloween, but even then we were excited for baseball season. Go RedHawks!
We've got a little baseball fever here in the North Dakota Tourism office. We're following the 50th anniversary of Roger Maris' legendary 1961 season, tomorrow the F-M RedHawks start their regular season and on Friday evening, an interview with North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple will air during the Minnesota Twins pre-game show on Fox Sports North. By the way, the Governor is being interviewed by that awesome host Marney Gellner who is also a North Dakotan! And you'll want to tune into the pre-game because we're giving away four tickets to a RedHawks game of your choice and Governor Dalrymple will tell you how to enter. The Twins Live Pregame show starts at 6:30 p.m. (CST), May 13 on FSN. The RedHawks start their season on the road, but next week (May 16, 17 and 18) will be home to host the St. Paul Saints for the first time in six years! These two teams had multiple championships in the Northern League of Independent Professional Baseball and it will be a classic rivalry as they compete in the American Association. Oh! And while you're enjoying baseball this summer be sure to grab a bag of Giant Sunflower Seeds, they're produced here in North Dakota too!
