The name " Minnesota Twins " instead of " Minneapolis ", where the team actually plays stems from the fact that the team intends to use the two twin cities (English: "twin cities" ) Minneapolis and St. Paul ( and thereby the throughout the American state of Minnesota) to represent. The name "Twins " is derived from the "Twin Cities" from ( Minneapolis and St. Paul are only separated by the Mississippi River). This is symbolized in the form of the stylized letters logos "TC" ( Twin Cities ) on the home baseball caps.
