Minnesota Twins - Home Stadiums

A. The Minnesota Twins franchise was established in 1901. The franchise was established in 1901 as a founding member of the American League. The team has been known as:
Washington Nationals/Senators 1901-1960
Minnesota Twins 1961-Present
Note: Beginning in 1901 the team was called the Nationals but because there had been a previous team in Washington called the Senators, for decades many fans continued to call the team the Senators even though they were the Nationals.

2. National Park / Griffith Stadium, Washington

D. Celebrate the Twins' uniform history by owning a piece of history:
If you love the Minnesota Twins and the history of the Twins franchise, you might really love to own an original piece of artwork celebrating the team's historic uniforms as seen in the poster at the top of this blog - you can actually own one of those original pieces of art! There are only 15 pieces of original art available for sale, and when these 15 are sold, that's it, they're all sold out.

These original watercolor paintings would make a great gift (birthday gift, anniversary gift, retirement gift, Christmas gift, etc.) for someone you love or even a great gift for yourself (one of these framed pieces would look fantastic in your home or office). Each piece can be bought one of three ways:
1. As unframed art that you could have framed or mounted yourself (the one on the left)
2. Framed in our "Classic" framed version (the middle version)
3. Framed in our "Deluxe" framed version (the version on the right)

If you would like more information about this great artwork including the three ways you could purchase each piece, please visit our Minnesota Twins YouTube video at or go directly to the artwork website where you can see and purchase the artwork.

And if someone you know loves the history of sports uniforms (but maybe another team) and loves great art, please let them know that we have over 1500 pieces of great original artwork for sale at (all NFL teams, all MLB teams, all NHL teams, all CFL teams, select NCAA football teams) or check out each team's video at the Heritage Sports Art YouTube Channel

E. Stadium artwork
Please note that the actual original, hand drawn pen and ink sketches used for the 8 ballpark images (the 8th image - Target Field - will be completed soon) shown above are available for sale as a complete collection to one Twins fan. If you are interested in being the owner of this complete and original collection of Minnesota Twins home ballpark images, please contact me by email and I can explain how all 8 can be framed in two beautiful companion pieces.

And please search my blog archive for other blogs on the history of the Twins.
