April is a wet month in Minnesota but the sun is out this morning and I think it is the first time in almost a week. The Twins have been home and have not had any games rained out but the fans and the players have had to endure some rain and cool weather for most of the current home stand.
However; the weather here in 2016 is mild when you compare it to the Minnesota Twins troubles 50 years ago back in 1966.
