Tuesday April 26th, 2016

The Twins paid tribute to music legend and lifelong Minnesotan Prince with a pregame ceremony on Monday. 

Prince died on Thursday at age 57 and all four of Minnesota’s major pro teams have offered tributes. The Twins were on the road at the time of his death and lit up Target Field in all purple

The team planned a more elaborate remembrance at the start of the homestand on Monday. Before first pitch, the team released seven white doves on the mound.

Each player also picked a different Prince song to use as their walkup music. 

Over the weekend, the team hosted a free screening of Prince’s Purple Rain
