The visitors will read a story about Jackie Robinson to students and show a brief video; in addition, students could win prizes in a quick trivia contest!

Students in those grades are also invited to participate in the Minnesota Twins' local version of the Jackie Robinson Breaking Barriers Essay Contest. The same contest criteria and rules apply, but students should submit their essays to their classroom teacher by March 24.

All students should wear their Twins gear or anything red or blue to welcome our guests.
