It was recently announced that after a record home run hitting season, the Homer Hanky would return in time for the Minnesota Twins postseason.  It's here.

The Twins partnered with the Star Tribune and CUB Foods to bring it back with a new look:

Blending the nostalgic feel of past Homer Hankies with the Bomba SZN mantra of the Twins’ record-setting “Bomba Squad”, the 2019 edition is sure to once again become a fan favorite. New for this October is the Homer Hanky color scheme and fabric, with Major League Baseball rules no longer allowing for white “rally towels." With “Twins red” emerging as a dominant feature of the club’s uniform color scheme, the 2019 Homer Hanky will mirror the team’s favored on-field look (Minnesota is 19-8 in their home red jerseys this season, while the red “Twins” script is the distinctive feature of the club’s alternate blue jerseys, in which they are 22-13).

If you'd like to get a new Homer Hanky to wave proudly during playoff games, there are several ways to do it:

  • Attend a playoff game at Target Field.  A Homer Hanky will be given to each fan entering Target Field for every Twins home game of the American League Division Series and, should they advance, the American League Championship Series.
  • Visit CUB Foods in Duluth.  All CUB locations across Minnesota will have them for sale beginning October 3.
  • Purchase at the Majestic Twins Clubhouse Store beginning Friday, October 4.
  • Buy them online.  You can click here to order your Homer Hanky for just $3 + tax and shipping.

The Twins face the New York Yankees, another homer-happy club, in the A.L. Divisional Series which opens in New York on October 4.  After the first two games of the best-of-five game series are in New York, the Twins will host the Yankees for game three on Monday, October 7.
