The Minnesota Twins are holding Prince Night this evening to honor the late Minneapolis icon and music legend, and the first 10,000 fans in attendance at Target Field get an awesome Prince-themed umbrella.
Check out the Purple Rain umbrella:

It certainly should be a fun night in Minnesota as they remember their local hero, as well as get to watch the first-place Twins play baseball (they’re deserving of more attention, by the way).
