Twins announce "Sid Hartman Day" just in time for his birthday


On May 18, the Twins will honor Minnesota's most iconic sports journalist with bobbleheads, commemorative coffee mugs, and a pregame ceremony.

"Sid Hartman Day" was announced by the organization this morning, just one day shy of Sid's 94th birthday.

To be honest, we think it'd be cooler if the Twins gave away Sid Hartman commemorative tape recorders (check out a photo of what we're talking about here), but we suppose in that case they'd have to charge a lot more than $34 for tickets.

If you're interested in owning one of the 1,000 "exclusive limited-edition" Sid bobbleheads, you can buy tickets here.

And happy birthday, Sid. Here's to many more.
