(Released May 8, 2014)

Kids and adults who have a 2014 Minnesota hunting or fishing license receive a free blaze orange and camouflage Twins logo baseball cap when they buy a discounted Minnesota Twins ticket online at www.mndnr.gov/twins.

“This special promotion between the Twins and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is a great deal for fans of the outdoors and baseball,” said Jenifer Wical, of the DNR outreach section.Twins cap (close)

The special rate starts with the Sunday, May 18, home game against the Seattle Mariners. It also includes home games on Friday, June 6, against the Houston Astros; Thursday, June 19, against the Chicago White Sox; Saturday, Aug. 16, against the Kansas City Royals; Sunday, Sept. 7, against the Los Angeles Angels; and Saturday, Sept. 20, against the Cleveland Indians.

Discounted ticket prices are $16. Ticket buyers pick up their cap at the game.

“Minnesota culture wouldn’t be complete without hunting, fishing and Twins baseball,” said Phil McMullen, Twins ticket sales executive.

Those who want to buy discount tickets should go to www.mndnr.gov/twins and enter the transaction number, which is printed on the license. The DNR Twins Web page provides ticket buying instructions and shows the location of the transaction number.

A limited number of tickets are available for each game and will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. The offer is available only through the DNR Twins Web page.

Minnesota 2014 fishing and hunting licenses can be purchased and printed online at www.mndnr.gov/buyalicense or from any DNR license agent.
