The Minnesota Twins trailed the Detroit Tigers by a wide margin heading down the stretch. But with the Tigers' fall from grace, the Twins were given new life. At the very end of the season, the two teams played a one-game playoff, which lasted for 12 innings. This gave them the AL Central title and put them in the playoffs for the first time in a couple of years. To make it to their first championship since the early nineties, they will have to win over the Yankees and then win the AL Championship Series. While this may sound like a tall order, remember that only a month ago we could hardly imagine this team making the playoffs in the first place! 2009 Twins playoff tickets are some of the hottest tickets right now, and you will get to see a team that is pushing hard to win a championship. And they have the crew to do it! With Cuddyer, Kubel, and Mauer coming up to bat, the Yankees will have their work cut out for them. It will be a year to remember in Minnesota since the Twins are right at the top of their game and in the playoffs!
