These are the "can't miss" sporting events happening in Minneapolis this summer!
Catch a Twins Game
Minnesota summers and outdoor baseball go hand in hand. And with the Twins on top of the AL Central Division, this summer is the best time to head over to Target Field to watch all the baseball action.
Must see games:
June 21 - 23 vs Cleveland Guardians
Although the Guardians trail the Twins in the standings, a division rivalry is always worth a watch.
July 12 - 13 vs Milwaukee Brewers
Everyone loves a classic border battle. The Minnesota/Wisconsin rivalry gets real whenever the Brewers come to town.
July 14 - 13 vs Chicago White Sox
The White Sox are chasing the Twins for the AL Division's top spot, which should make for a competitive series.
August 4 - 7 vs Toronto Blue Jays
As one of the top contending teams in the American league, the Blue Jays will be a fun match-up for the Twins.
The Minnesota Lynx are trying to climb back into playoff contention this summer, especially after last year's early second round playoff exit. It's also fan favorite Sylvia Fowles good-bye tour, as the 2x champ has announced she will retire after this year.
Must See Games:
June 23 vs. Phoenix Mercury
Come out and see Diana Taurasi, one of the league's top players take on the Lynx.
July 1 & 3 vs. Las Vegas Aces
The number one team in the league currently and head coaching debut for former WNBA player Becky Hammond is sure to bring a crowd.
July 6 vs. Chicago Sky
The defending champs come to town, they also were the team that booted the Lynx out of the playoffs last year, which always makes for a good revenge plot. This is a afternoon game and will be great for the kids!
July 31 vs Los Angles Sparks
Everyone loves a good "Beat LA" chant, make your way down to Target Center and get one started again the Sparks.
August 12 vs. Seattle Storm
