Born and raised in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, Melissa has been exposed to the best and worst of what can happen with professional sports; teams leaving town, dome collapses, brilliant careers ending too soon. Of all of those, her favorite team has become the Minnesota Twins. She attended her first Minnesota Twins game in that magical year of 1987, the year in which the Twins won their first World Series title. Immediately hooked by the game’s ups and downs, Melissa has continued to followed the sport religiously. Marketing Communications professional by day, Minnesota Twins ambassador by night, she is very excited to be covering the MLB. Thank you for reading!

Winter ends when Spring Training begins
