The three candidates for the Twins are Josemy Morales Marcano of Maplewood, Kymberly Koenig of St. Paul and Patrick Nelson of Eden Prairie.
"We're going to honor the candidates here at Target Field at end of the month on the 30th," said Bryan Donaldson, the Twins' senior director of community affairs. "Our winner will get to the raise the American Flag like a veteran does every game. We'll have also the second-place finishers here, too. But the winner also goes to the All-Star Game, which will be a fun thing."
