You Will Soon Be Able to Buy Official Prince Merch at Minnesota Twins Games

There's a whole bunch of new Prince merch coming

It was no secret that Prince was a huge sports fan. When he was alive, he could be seen rooting for hometown teams like the Minnesota Vikings and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

He was rarely seen at Minnesota Twins games, but that hasn't stopped the team from going all in with Prince.

With that announcement the team also revealed that they will be doing a Prince Night on June 8; the first 10,000 fans in attendance will receive an inflatable guitar shaped as the symbol.

This will be the second time the Twins held a Prince night. Last year they held one where they gave out purple umbrellas.
