And these weren't nosebleeds. Perkins left four lower-level, behind-home-plate tickets for the fan and his girlfriend, cousin, and grandma.
Here's the exchange:
As he settled in to watch the game, Berg thanked Perkins for what he did:
Afterward, Perkins expressed surprise at how many tweeters were saying nice things to him for hooking Berg up:
I am absolutely overwhelmed by the comments I've received for leaving @alexberg22 tickets. There are a lot of good people out there. Thanks.-- Glen Perkins (@glen_perkins) April 30, 2013
It should be noted that Perkins is a Minnesota boy through and through, having attended Stillwater High School and the University of Minnesota. Minnesota nice, indeed.
