  • Last week I told you about a charity run: 15’s 5K. It was a real Perkins family effort, with Glen’s wife, Alisha, doing the organizing, planning, and giving the congratulations to the runners at the finish line. Glen was at both the starting line and at the reception on the plaza, handing out medals with his mom and dad. I also told you about Glen, Phil Hughes, and Brian Duensing pulling up to the starting line in the bed of a pickup truck. That truck was being driven by a very interesting character. It was driven by Glen’s father-in-law, Kurt Weber.

     One of the nicest events that happens every year during Twins’ Hope Week is hosted by first baseman Joe Mauer. It is called Picnic in the Park, but is actually a pizza party that Joe throws for the kids from Gillette Children’s Hospital. It is held in the Legends Club at Target Field. Joe has a close relationship with the hospital: His wife worked there as a nurse before they had kids of their own. Joe has made many quiet, unpublicized visits to Gillette over the years, and does many other private and personal things for both the hospital and the children.

Call him on his phone, and you will hear a magnificent set of pipes, with a warm, friendly voice answering: “Scott O’Connell here!”
